Research opportunities are abundant at Cleveland Clinic and are available in all areas of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. In 2020-2021, 18 residents (66%) made at least one national presentation (range 1-6), and 12 residents (15%) had at least one published manuscript (range 1-3). In just the last academic year, there were 35 published manuscripts authored by our residents. Of the eight residents graduating in June 2021, all had at least one published manuscript (range 3-10) and all had at least one national presentation (range 1-4) 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.
