Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at The UVM Medical Center

Welcome to The University of Vermont Medical Center's Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Our providers offer excellence in patient care, resident, medical student and allied health care teaching, and clinical and basic research.

In addition to performing testing for The UVM Medical Center inpatient and outpatient population, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine serves as a reference and consultative service for many hospitals in the Northeast. We are the primary reference lab for the Northeast Community Laboratory Alliance (NECLA), a regional affiliation linking community hospital labs throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York. Mayo Medical Laboratories is also a founding member and partners with the network to perform very esoteric testing not offered locally.

The department comprises 30 full-time pathologists with a full range of specialties including, dermatology, cytogentics, pulmonology, autopsy, breast cancer and neuropathology. As a regional reference laboratory, we perform over 2.7 million tests annually. In addition, we have over 37,000 surgical cases and 1,400 consults each year. Our residency program currently accepts up to 17 residents and fellows. The program offers a combined curriculum in both anatomic and clinical pathology leading to board certification for both disciplines.
