The University of Utah Pathology Residency Program has furthered my career in ways I did not anticipate or could even imagine before residency. This inclusive and exciting program provides residents with well-balanced anatomic and clinical pathology programs that are focused on local, regional and national patient-centered healthcare. Our AP division is located on the third floor of the Huntsman Cancer Institute building which is nestled into the foothills of the Wasatch Range and boasts amazing views of the Salt Lake Valley all the way to the Great Salt Lake. Here we see a diverse set of over 30,000 in house surgical pathology cases and have opportunities to be involved in consult surgical pathology cases from around the United States. Just across the University of Utah campus is our CP site within the expansive and futuristic buildings of ARUP Laboratories, a large national reference laboratory. Training here allows us to interact with experts in a variety of fields with a culture of education that translates to in depth, patient-centered, and hands on laboratory training.
Not only is the training outstanding, but the experiences you will have in Utah are beyond compare. Utah continues to grow in population, leading to an ever-changing landscape of amazing restaurants, bars, local craft breweries, coffee shops and entertainment. I love to spend my weekends biking or hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter, but Salt Lake City offers options for all interests. The recent COVID pandemic has highlighted the adaptability and comradery of our residents as well as the resident education, wellness, and career development aspects of our program. I look forward to meeting you, sharing more about our program, and discussing your future in pathology!
