​Postgraduate Programme​​​


​Pathology Residency is ​a five year programme with emphasis on patients service, teaching and research. During the tenure, residents rotate through the following sections:

  • Chemical Pathology

  • Haematology and Transfusion Medicine​

  • Histopathology

  • Microbiology

During their rotation, residents are expected to learn laboratory administration, technical methodologies, quality assurance and control procedures, liaison with other clinicians in the Hospital training of technologists and general day to day work within the clinical laboratory. Their academic activities include helping in teaching and active involvement in research projects. First year residents are given more practical work and as they go up the ladder, their responsibilities are increased within the lab along with teaching and research commitments. Residents at all levels are expected to participate in the postgraduate programme of the Department and the clinical meetings within this institution and the city. The Department encourages them to present their research findings at national/international meetings.

This programme is supervised by the programme Director and coordinators of various disciplines.

The Departmental Residency committee (DRC) is comprised of faculty members representing all sections of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Director Residency,​ and a representative of the residents (Chief Resident). It acts as a bridge between the Department of Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) and the Department of Pathology and Medicine. The DRC looks after the resident's interest within the Department, including induction of new residents, promotions, graduations, and their day-to-day activities.

Apart from above mentioned programmes, there is a strong component of training molecular technique. A separate rotation is designed to enhance theoretical and practical skills of residents is the field of Molecular Pathology.​
