The Department Chair

The Department Chair impacts the experience as a resident because he or she is ultimately responsible for the quality of the faculty and for the tenor of the relationship between faculty and residents; hence, he or she substantially affects the quality of your education.

Dr. Douglas Clark is the current Chair as of October 2013.

How the Chair supports residents

  1. There is an annual allowance for residents to purchase books and/or attend professional meetings. Year 1 allowance is $1600, year 2 allowance is $1600, year 3 allowance is $1400 and year 4 allowance is $1200.

  2. The Chair provides up to $1500 for residents to attend meetings at which they give a platform presentation or exhibit a poster.

  3. Resident office space was recently renovated, which created expanded room for each resident to have a personal desk and improved conference space and IT equipment for photograph and projection from the microscopes.

  4. The Chair supports a senior resident to serve as a representative to the resident forums of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists and the College of American Pathologists.

  5. The Department supports a pathology multimedia center for assistance in assembling professional quality slide and computer presentations, posters, and manuscript illustrations.

  6. First and foremost, though, Dr. Clark advocates superior training of pathologists.
