We also have a number of self-guided cytology/hematology teaching sets.  Scheduled activities would include:

  • Weekly histology and clinical pathology slide seminar
  • Weekly journal club with faculty and residents
  • Weekly surgical biopsy class directed at clinical residents
  • Weekly clinical pathology rounds
  • Weekly integrated (with clin path and radiology) gross necropsy rounds
