Pathology plays a role in every aspect of animal and human health. As the study of the process and diagnosis of disease, pathology plays a crucial role in identifying and treating the diseases that affect public health.
We can be found at the microscope consulting with clinicians about changes in the tissue of an ailing dog, in the lab doing research to help advance the understanding of disease and developing preventions or cures, or in the classroom introducing veterinary students to the concepts and mechanisms of disease.
Our faculty teach foundational anatomy and histology courses as part of the DVM curriculum and perform a critical service function to our veterinary teaching hospital and to clinics and organizations within the state and across the nation, providing analysis and diagnosis of samples as well as necropsy services.
We offer a competitive post-DVM residency program in anatomical or clinical pathology that prepares you for the board examination of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP). For those seeking a Master’s or PhD program, we offer both as part the College’s comparative biomedical science program.
We are a collaborative group of pathology specialists passionate about enhancing the educational environment and learning outcomes, serving our community with expert diagnostics and solving global health problems through translational research.
We are committed to developing a diverse science workforce, modernizing our field, raising awareness of disease mechanisms, and promoting a holistic approach for the benefit of animal, human, and environmental health.
