Welcome to Anatomic Pathology


The Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine at Queen’s University has a long history of training outstanding Anatomical Pathologists.   Fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, the Anatomical Pathology residency program offers comprehensive training in the study of the morphologic aspects of disease. 

Residents who choose to come to Queen’s will find themselves welcomed into a friendly and supportive environment where they are regarded as highly-valued members of our team.  Our smaller size ensures that faculty are able to get to know each resident well and offer continuous guidance, support, and one-on-one teaching opportunities.

Our research activities are almost unparalleled in Canada for a department of our size.  With over $10 million in annual operating grants, world-class faculty are engaged in nationally-respected, ground breaking research.   Residents are strongly supported in their own research endeavours and are able to devote up to a year of their program to research.

Graduates of our program are prepared for a wide range of rewarding careers as independent consultants and academic physicians.  Many of our residents have also gone on to complete prestigious Fellowships, both in Canada and abroad. 

We are proud to offer one of Canada’s leading programs in Anatomical Pathology.  It is a rigorous yet highly rewarding experience and I hope you will take the opportunity to learn more.  I look forward to meeting you in the future.
