Welcome to Pathology

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine continues to maintain its primary teaching program at the University of Louisville Hospital, but relies heavily on support for its residency and fellowship training with Norton Hospital, Jewish Hospital, and the Medical Examiner’s Office. Under the direction of Dr. Toni Ganzel, Dean of the School of Medicine, we are developing a new approach to healthcare, research and education.

See more about our new approach to healthcare, research, education and our Chairman, Dr. Eyas Hattab.

The FEBRUARY Pathology Spotlight is on:

February was American Heart Month and our ULH lab staff took it to heart by wearing red on National Wear Red Day. All over the country, people wear red to raise awareness to eradicate heart disease and stroke for women. Thank you for showing your true colors and for making a difference!

Our very own Dr. Norh Alghamdimoderated two virtual sessions for The Mass Spectrometry Application for Clinical Chemistry (MSACL) community. MSACL provides virtual sessions, short courses and workshops on topics that cover mass spectrometry techniques used in the clinical field. She is also a proud member of this prestigious community. Way to go, Norah! Follow the links to see Norah in action!


The DECEMBER Pathology Spotlight is on:

The Clinical Chemistry Fellowship Program is racking up the awards and achieving national recognition.... again! We're not surprised! Our former and current clinical chemistry fellows, Dr. Cierra Sharp and Dr. Norah Alghamdi (respectively), participated in the American Association for Clinical Chemistry's virtual meeting in December 2020!

Dr. Khaled Alkhateeb is volunteering with the Louisville Metro Public Health Department to give vaccine shots to the public! This operation is run by nurses, doctors, volunteers, pharmacists and the general public.
