Unique opportunities abound in Clinical and Experimental Pathology at the Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. 

Our mission is to deliver the highest quality of medical care through the use of state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures and the translation of new knowledge into the practice of Pathology.

Thanks to its unique collaboration with the Sue Golding Graduate Division the Department of Pathology has blazed a new path in medical, resident and graduate education. The department is home to approximately 21 residents, 8 clinical fellows, 15 postdoctoral scholars, and 15 graduate students from various Ph.D. programs.

Our faculty members receive approximately $6 million of federal funding to conduct basic, translational, and clinical research in the mechanisms of disease. Our major programs include: Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, NeuroAIDS, Parasitology, Cancer Biology, Immunology, Vascular Biology, and Cytology and Cytogenetics.

Our clinical program provides outstanding care while fulfilling the needs of our referring doctors and their patients. We performed over 10 million tests in 2012.

Our laboratories provide services to diverse settings throughout the Bronx and lower Westchester County including acute care academic medical centers, large medical groups, schools, shelters, nursing homes, hospices, emergency departments and solo practitioners.
