Research opportunities are abundant at Cleveland Clinic and are available in all areas of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. In 2019-2020, 15 residents (54%) made at least one national presentation (range 1-6), and 14 residents (15%) had at least one published manuscript (range 1-6). In just the last academic year, there were 35 published manuscripts authored by our residents. Of the eight residents graduating in June 2020, 75 percent had at least one published manuscript (range 1-24) and all had at least one national presentation (range 2-14) during residency training. Our program has consistently been one of the top three institutions to submit abstracts to the USCAP Annual Meeting each year.
Rather than bench-type research, the majority of projects our residents undertake are more translational in nature – evaluating performance of a new assay, investigating reliability of a new morphologic observation or a diagnostic test in a specific disease.
