The pathology residency program at Loma Linda University offers well-rounded pathology education and training in a collegial, family-like Christian atmosphere. As a smaller university program, one of our department’s primary focuses is providing high quality education with sufficient flexibility to meet our residents’ individual training interests and scheduling needs, not just quickly finishing cases to retreat back to research laboratories. Our integrated AP/CP Residency Program provides comprehensive core training that ensures our residents maintain exposure to both AP and CP each year, building expertise in preparation for board exams and clinical practice.
