The University of Hawai’i Pathology Residency Program is a four-year fully accredited training program in anatomic and clinical pathology. Pathology residents expand their knowledge through extensive reading, frequent case presentations, laboratory bench work and case-based learning. Our program’s educational format focuses on evaluating laboratory material from individual patients with emphasis given to clinicopathologic correlation. This case study approach is augmented by a comprehensive, well-balanced curriculum using didactics, local and nationally recognized consultants, pathology study sets, online resources, and reading assignments from relevant texts and journals.

Collectively, institutions access over 70,000 surgical specimens, over 150,000 cytology specimens, over eight million clinical laboratory determinations and over 700 autopsies each year. This, combined with individual faculty member consultation case material provides our residents the widest possible exposure to pathology material.

During the four-year residency, residents rotate through several institutions including 3 major hospitals: Kaiser Permanente—also known as the Kaiser Foundation Hospital (Moanalua), The Queen’s Medical Center, and Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. Specialty training is conducted at the Medical Examiner’s Office, Queen’s Medical Center Genetics Laboratories, Clinical Laboratories of Hawai’i, LLP, Blood Bank of Hawai’i and Tripler Army Medical Center.
