3.5.20 Pathology

Core Courses

The teaching in Pathology is designed to provide a systematic coverage of the principal diseases or groups of diseases, including their etiology, pathogenesis, pathology and pathophysiology. This is done with a combination of lectures and small group sessions, in conjunction and integrated with the other units of the curriculum. Thus, the Department of Pathology contributes to multidisciplinary Units 7 and 8, as outlined in BOM as well as to the section, Introduction to Hospital Practice.

Weekly clinico-pathological conferences are offered in conjunction with the Medicine rotation.

The Department provides four-week electives for medical students after completion of Unit 8 of the Basis of Medicine. These are available at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal General Hospital, Jewish General Hospital, St. Mary's Hospital and the Montreal Children's Hospital. Please contact Mrs. Hoffmann, Teaching Office, Duff Medical Building, (514) 398-7192 x00481.

Other Courses

The Department is well-equipped for graduate research leading to the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees and offers several graduate-level courses. See the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Calendar and the Faculty of Science section of the Undergraduate Programs Calendar.
