Program Highlights

Our program offers residents the opportunity to train at multiple laboratory sites within the cities of Winnipeg and Brandon (Westman Laboratory). Our multiple teaching and training sites receive a wide variety of cytology, surgical and autopsy cases. Our department has a hybrid generalist-subspecialty practice offering the residents the benefits of both general surgical pathology and subspecialty training. Our department has a busy autopsy service covering adult and pediatric hospital based and medico-legal autopsy cases from across the province. Beyond the protected academic half-day, the residents are offered many slide sessions by the teaching faculty within the department. Some of the resources that assist the residents in achieving their goals are the following: Annual Research Day,Scholarly Activities, Annual Resident Retreat, multiple competency based assessments including the Annual In-Service Exam with digital images. The Anatomical Pathology Residency Program is actively engaged in Professionalism workshops and teaching sessions. As well, the program offers multiple safety sessions along with Quality Assurance and lab management. The Department also has additional training through the Simulation Lab sessions. The Department provides support for the resident to attend the Residency Review Course and other conferences including CAP-ACP, and will support the resident for out of province/out of country elective rotations. As well, the Department of Pathology has a very high faculty to resident ratio which provides residents more one on one teaching opportunities and more pathology exposure.

Resident Experience

Rana Chakrabarti
What makes this program great are a combination of the volume, diversity and breadth of cases, the inviting and supportive atmosphere which fosters confidence in learning and the small number of residents. This allows us to both work with a number of different pathologists and learn different styles and techniques, but also provides us with frequent opportunities to get to know attendings personally which fosters a great sense of community. The patient population we serve is both geographically and culturally diverse which allows residents to experience pathology that we may not see in conventional urban centers.
