University of Hawaii Pathology Residency Program

During the first 3 years, residents are assigned rotations between one and two months in duration, balancing the experiences in both clinical and anatomical pathology for each year. During the first 2 years, there is an emphasis on acquiring basic skills and knowledge with core rotations in each area of specialty. During the 3rd and 4th years, the emphasis is on advanced training with further honing of skills and attainment of competency.  The fourth year is designed with the program director for educational experiences in a specific area(s) of interest.
