About Our Pathology Residency Program

The Department of Pathology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, is committed to providing state-of-the-art training to prepare physicians for leadership roles in pathology and academic medicine. We offer three resident training pathways: First, our combined anatomic pathology/clinical pathology (AP/CP) pathway provides comprehensive training in all areas of tissue diagnostics and laboratory medicine. Second, our AP only pathway prepares residents for careers as academic surgical pathologists. Third, our CP only pathway prepares residents for careers as future leaders in laboratory medicine. All pathways include extensive opportunities to participate in research projects with world-renowned experts in pathology or related disciplines.

In April 2023, Michael Roehrl, MD, PhD, MBA joined the BIDMC Department of Pathology as Department Chair. Dr. Roehrl is an internationally renowned pathologist, investigator and educator. He was previously at New York’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where he was Director of the Precision Pathology Center and Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Building on the work of our former Chair, Dr. Jeffrey Saffitz, Dr. Roehrl will continue to focus on further development of state-of-the-art facilities to practice pathology and provide the highest quality patient care. He also believes that the education of students, residents and fellows is a core mission of the department. Already long recognized for excellence, there is the highest commitment from Dr. Roehrl to ensure our training programs will continue to develop and flourish.

At BIDMC, residency and fellow training is the heart and soul of our department. We believe that we have created an outstanding environment for residents to learn and grow professionally with an underlying emphasis on Support, Access, Mentoring, and Teaching.
