Neurology Welcome and CTA

Welcome to the Department of Neurology at Penn State College of Medicine. As one of the premier academic departments of neurology in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the only one in central Pennsylvania, the department is known for its world-class patient care, education and research.

The department is in an exciting phase of growth as clinical services expand to meet the needs of our patients, the residency program increases in size, and research activity and collaborations proliferate.

The department provides state-of-the-art care for patients across a wide range of neurologic disorders, and its providers are actively engaged in clinical research while collaborating with basic scientists at Hershey and University Park. 

The outstanding team of academic neurologists educates medical students at various stages of their undergraduate medical studies. They also train graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows and clinical fellows – all with the goal of developing the next generation of leaders in the field of neurology. 

The department is also proud of its outreach activities to neurologists and non-neurology health care providers, as well as the community at large

Pathology Mission Chair Letter Basic Content

Welcome to the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.

Access to timely and accurate diagnoses and laboratory test results is critical for the vast majority of key clinical decisions made in caring for our patients. At the same time, investigative approaches within the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine seek to further define our understanding of disease processes, paving the way for therapeutic interventions. The department thus occupies a unique position at the interface of clinical care and investigative activity. This allows us to contribute in a truly meaningful manner to translational research. The Department embraces the tripartite mission of Penn State Health and Penn State College of Medicine in that clinical service, education, and research are essential components of our activities.

Education in Pathology

Academic faculty shoulder the responsibility to provide a learning experience for students and residents that will catapult them into the professional arena as well-trained, knowledgeable, inquiring medical graduates and competent, compassionate, intellectually mature physicians. Pathology faculty have direct interactions with medical students at all levels and are significantly involved with curriculum development and oversight.

The Graduate Medical Education program in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology hosts 16 residents and seven fellows, four in ACGME-accredited fellowships. Trainees participate in all activities within the department, obtaining requisite competencies through graduated responsibilities, as they progress towards their career goal of becoming competent diagnosticians and independent pathologists. Success is defined by a high pass rate on the American Board of Pathology examinations as well as placement of the department's residents into some of the most prestigious fellowship programs around the country.

The department also hosts a Medical Laboratory Scientist training program, which will graduate 10 trainees this year. With an intensive one-year-long didactic and bench-based program, graduates are ready to take on new positions in the medical laboratory.

We hope this brief introduction to the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine has sparked your interest and you will continue to explore our website and the field of Pathology. Come and visit us to get a firsthand look at our department and meet with our faculty, staff and trainees. We welcome the opportunity to meet and to discuss your interests and future academic endeavors.
