Supporting the Penn State Health Mission

The Department of Pathology plays a vital and integral role in the medical center’s multifaceted missions.

Patient care

Through provision of high-quality diagnostic services and the practice of laboratory medicine, the department supports the wide range of medical care provided at the institution. 


We give high priority to training and developing the next generation of health care providers, biomedical scientists, and our workforce through the creation of educational experiences that introduce recent advances in medical and scientific knowledge and turn them into learning experiences through the use of modern instructional techniques. 


We foster discovery and application of new information and technologies through:

  • An environment that encourages analytical thought and investigation
  • Laboratory facilities that provide technical expertise to support research
  • A wealth of clinical materials that form a rich substrate for translational investigations

In everything we do in the Department of Pathology, we strive to create an atmosphere that promotes professional development and personal growth.
