Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Affiliated Institutions & Related Activities

The department has formed affiliations with the Department of Pathology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Methodist Hospital, and the Medical Examiner's Office in Philadelphia. These affiliates provide rotations training in Community Pathology,  Pediatric Pathology and Forensic Pathology, respectively. Staff Pathologists from a number of Philadelphia hospitals hold affiliate Faculty positions in our Department and all welcome Jefferson residents for "mini-rotations" with the intent of providing an opportunity to directly observe the practice of Pathology in a community in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Opportunities to meet the affiliated faculty occur in the context of the teaching program for Jefferson medical students.
