Chairman's Message

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine has a new approach that will help our department become a nationally recognized center of excellence in basic and applied research, education and training, and clinical practice in pathology and laboratory medicine.

We have established the following goals:

  • Increase the research activities of our full time faculty, residents and fellows
  • Increase the quality and quantity of publications of our full time faculty, residents and fellows,
  • increase our grant support with emphasis on federally funded support, develop several applied research programs to enhance diagnostic capabilities, develop and present quality, state of the art education and training programs,
  • Offer a pathology residency training program that attracts high quality applicants and ranked highly as indicated by their ability to successfully pass the American Board of Pathology certifying exam on their initial sitting and their professional exams,
  • Participate in the development of a multidisciplinary graduate education program,
  • Develop research partnerships and collaborative programs,
  • Enhance present clinical services and develop new service programs to support the University of Louisville Challenge for Excellence Programs, other University departments and extramural organizations so as to achieve a solid financial base for the Department.

We hope this departmental-wide master strategic plan will be used as the principal vision in guiding our Department’s activities and growth for the future.
