Pathology Residency

Established in 1951, the Pathology Residency at NYU Long Island School of Medicine strives to produce pathologists who are knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of pathology, with a superior commitment to lifelong learning and providing excellent patient care. Our residency is fully accredited and has two tracks: a four-year anatomic pathology and clinical pathology track and a three-year anatomic pathology track.

With 9 residents and 17 pathologists, our program, led by Iman Hanna, MD, director, and Jordan E. Baum, MD, associate director, stands out as a small family-oriented and tightly knit group. The entire Department of Pathology faculty is devoted to teaching and providing superb patient care. Residents are exposed to a great variety of “bread and butter” cases as well as complex and unusual cases that provide them with a strong foundation in anatomic pathology and clinical pathology.

We are committed to providing residents with a well-rounded educational experience. Our didactics include a wide range of subspecialty and interdisciplinary conferences, and residents have access to vast educational resources including books, e-books, slide study sets, question banks, subscriptions to online pathology practices, and board review databases.

We provide resources to support research projects in collaboration with attendings and staff, and our expert faculty lead a mentorship program to support residents’ professional development. We also have a wellness program to support our cohort’s wellbeing within and outside of residency.

Our residents are consistently accepted into top competitive fellowship programs across the country and are prepared to excel in both academic careers and busy private practices.
