Medical Student Clerkship

The Department of Pathology faculty members are very involved in teaching and mentoring medical students. Our department has resources available through our department, as well as opportunities managed through the Augusta Webster Office of Education at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

Medical Student Clerkship

Our department offers a four-week pathology rotation for M3 and M4 medical students. The goal of the rotation is to provide a thorough understanding of the pathology of a wide variety of diseases, the natural history of the diseases, and the normal anatomy and histology of the human organism.

This rotation provides comprehensive understanding of all facets of surgical pathology by exposing the students to state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques that range from standard procedures to advanced molecular approaches. It’s a valuable introduction to the field of diagnostic pathology for medical students going into pathology and non-pathology careers.
