Pathology Residency

The Integrated Pathology Residency Program of Our System

Pathology Residency Program

Welcome to Integrated Pathology Residency Program

This is an ACGME accredited post graduate training program approved for 18 positions over a four year (48 month) course. The training program is a combined Anatomic and Clinical Pathology curriculum that satisfies ACGME requirements of at least 18 months of training in each discipline.

The program is an integrated one among the three major teaching hospitals of our system: Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, NJ and Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ. The residents rotate through each of these main institutions, thereby enhancing exposure to a wide variety of pathology.

Message from the Program Director

Saint Barnabas, Newark Beth Israel and Monmouth Medical Centers

Thank you for taking time to review information about our system Integrated Pathology Residency Program. It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to this site and have the opportunity to showcase our program. Our system has a long history of graduate medical education in Pathology, hosting residents continuously since 1947. Newark Beth Israel and Monmouth Medical also share a long-term involvement in pathology postgraduate education. We have trained residents who are currently practicing throughout the United States and Canada, as well as Argentina, The Dominican Republic, Philippines, Japan, New Zealand and the US Virgin Islands.

We maintain contact with many of our graduates who practice in New Jersey, keeping up with their progress and successes. We are always available to assist them with difficult situations.

Preparing a Frozen Section

To us, postgraduate education does not end when a resident graduates from the program. Rather, it is a career commitment to life-long learning. Our residents are a source of inspiration and motivation to be the best in our specialty and in our daily lives. A symbiotic relationship is formed between resident and teacher affording opportunities for learning on both sides.

Our program is structured and organized with designated rotations having specific goals and objectives. We strive to give our residents the best possible training and to that extent we feel we have achieved our goal. To date, 100% of our graduates who have taken the certifying examination of the American Board of Pathology have been successful. Our commitment to the education of our residents is unconditional and we intend to keep it that way.
