Medical Microbiology

The purpose of this approved residency program is to educate physicians to a level of competence that will enable them to direct the microbiology services in any hospital or other health care facility. Emphasis is placed on the appropriate delivery of diagnostic tests, infection control, and consultation services to clinical colleagues who look after patients with infection. It is a five-year program comprising a basic clinical year, two core years of medical microbiology, one year in an elective program approved by the director, and one year of approved clinical training in internal medicine or pediatrics including infectious diseases. The residency is one of five streams in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and offers opportunities for interactions in the sub-disciplines and specialties within anatomic, general, and neuropathology, and in medical biochemistry. Emphasis is placed on classical microbiological diagnostic strategies and molecular technologies.
