The clinical pathology division provides education for medical students, residents, fellows, graduate students, as well as undergraduates currently pursuing further education at the University of Utah in medicine and the laboratory sciences as well as in laboratory research. Two continuing medical education courses are also offered to practicing pathologists, clinicians, and laboratory scientists from throughout the US and the world. These include the Update in Clinical Immunology, Microbiology and Infectious Disease, and Park City Update in Clinical and Laboratory Medicine.
The division also plays a major role in the teaching of medical students by directing and participating in the freshman microbiology and immunology courses and provides a senior medical student elective course in clinical pathology that reviews all of clinical and laboratory medicine, preparing medical students for efficient use of the clinical laboratory in practice. The clinical pathology rotations for the University of Utah Department of Pathology residency program draw on the expertise and wide diversity of the clinical pathology faculty, making this a premier training experience in clinical pathology for both AP/CP and CP only residents. In addition, the division also sponsors fellowship programs in hematopathology, clinical chemistry, clinical immunology, medical microbiology, clinical biochemical genetics, clinical cytogenetics, clinical molecular genetics, and medical genetics that make use of the wide diversity and extensive number of samples seen through the University of Utah Hospital and ARUP reference laboratory to provide advanced specialty training.
