Pathology Department

Welcome to the Department of Pathology


The activities of the Pathology department in research, teaching and clinical service reflect the contributions of its members at the University of Western Ontario and the London Health Sciences Centre (University Hospital, Victoria Hospital and St. Joseph's Health Centre).

The department offers residency training programs in anatomical pathology, general pathology, neuropathology, and medical microbiology.

Our graduate program offers training to science, medical and dental graduates, as well as to clinical residents who wish to get solid research training in an academic environment in both full-time and part-time graduate programs. The department also offers a 22 month course and practicum based program to equip graduates to act as Pathologists Assistants.

The department also offers undergraduate pathology courses to medical students, dental students, nursing students and several undergraduate pathology courses in the joint specialization in Pathology and Toxicology in conjunction with the Dept of Physiology & Pharmacology (open to students in the BMSc program).
