Research opportunities are abundant at Cleveland Clinic and are available in all areas of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. In 2016-2017, 59 percent of residents had one or more national presentations (range 1-7) with 41 total presentations. In just the last academic year, there were 30 published manuscripts authored by 14 residents. Of the seven residents graduating in June 2017, 86 percent had at least one published manuscript (range 1-6) and all had at least one national presentation (range 1-10) during residency training. The program supports resident research by providing resources and travel for national presentations (for more information see Resident Resources). 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.
