Anatomic & Clinical Pathology Residency Training Programs
The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at the American University of Beirut Medical Center offers two residency training programs: one in Anatomic Pathology (AP), and the second in Clinical Pathology (CP). Holders of Doctor of Medicine (MD) or its equivalent, irrespective of their nationality, are eligible to apply to these programs.
ANATOMIC PATHOLOGY The AP program is a four year program which offers a variety of surgical and cytopathology training opportunities. The resident is exposed to different rotations with hands-on experience including fine needle aspiration, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, flow cytometry, molecular pathology and cytogenetics. Knowledge is gained through a structured schedule of didactic and interactive departmental or interdepartmental conferences, and through service work. Participation in research is in-built through an institutional Fellowship and Residency Research Program (FRRP) (https://frrp.aub.edu.lb/) where all residents and fellows are required to enroll and ensure exposure to all details culminating in a presentation at a national research day, abstract, or a publication. Resident evaluation is based on the overall service and academic performance. A resident in-service exam (RISE), offered by the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP), is administered annually. Anatomic Pathology Residency Program (Under current updating)
CLINICAL PATHOLOGY The CP program is a four year program that offers a variety of laboratory rotations with substantial hands-on exposure. The core program offers rotations in Hematology, Clinical Chemistry, Microbiology, Serology, Blood Banking, Transfusion Medicine, Endocrinology, Medical Genetics, and Molecular Pathology. In his/her senior graduating year, the resident concentrates on area(s) of interest and is expected to complete a research project or publish his/her FRRP project. Resident evaluation is based on the overall service and academic performance. A resident in-service exam (RISE), offered by the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP), is administered annually. Clinical Pathology Residency Program (Under current updating)
