About the Department
Welcome to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.
Our department was established in the College of Medicine of the University of Cincinnati in 1903 and has an illustrious history of involvement in undergraduate medical and postgraduate education, pathology service and the acquisition of new knowledge related to human disease.
The department was renamed Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in 1979 to better reflect its academic mission and clinical responsibilities in a large university medical center.
The department advances the mission of the university by working closely with the affiliates of the medical center.
These include: UC Health University Hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC), the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC), the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office, Hoxworth Blood Center and Drake Center. The department is also an integrated member of UC Physicians.
Teaching and research activities are conducted in the Medical Science Building (MSB), Cardiovascular Research Center (CVC), Metabolic Diseases Institute (Reading Campus) and the CARE/Crawley Building.
