Loma Linda is an outstanding place to train as a growing pathologist. This department lives the Loma Linda mission statement “to make man whole” by emphasizing professional and personal growth. I have never met more approachable, sincere faculty who take the time to teach and share life together. The residents begin training as learners and leave as friends.
Our residents love the field of pathology and hail from a variety of different backgrounds. We pride ourselves in the diversity of our residents and the tight knit, family-like nature of our resident cohort.
Living in Loma Linda and Redlands provides the lower cost and safety of suburban life with the access to an international airport, sports, and theme parks of a metropolitan region. The area is also incredibly environmentally diverse, with beaches, alpine mountains, and the desert all within 60 miles.
Activities Outside of Work
Residents, attendings, and staff get together for the annual LLU Pathology Christmas Party, and a separate informal ‘ugly Christmas sweater’ party.
The neighboring city of Redlands hosts a number of local, independently-owned food and drink options to explore on nights and weekends, and is known for its avid cycling culture
Residents and attendings alike take advantage of the Loma Linda hills and local Yucaipa hills, which offer an abundance of hiking and mountain bike trails.
The local San Bernardino Mountains offer access to multiple ski resorts in the winter and downhill mountain biking in the summer, within less than a hour drive of LLUH.
A multitude of beaches, theme parks, and other attractions lie a 60-90 minute drive away, including Disney Land, LegoLand, Universal Studios, the San Diego Zoo.
Our program is committed to promoting resident wellness, including both personal and spiritual well-being and work/life balance. Our program designates a Chief Wellness Resident each year to serve on the GME Wellness Committee, guided by our GME Wellness Director, Dr. Amy Schill.
