The Anatomical Pathology Program at Western University has a long tradition of excellence, with a 100% pass rate at the Royal College exams for the past 29 years.
There is a comprehensive education program, with numerous rounds and teaching sessions.
We offer elective opportunities that permit the resident to tailor the program to their own needs and goals, while developing areas of scholarly interest.
The City of London, the Forest City, with its abundant trees and parks, is a pleasant city of around 400,000 located in Southwestern Ontario, midway between Toronto and Windsor/Detroit. London offers many of the amenities of a larger city without many of the associated aggravations. A significant proportion of London’s population works at Western University or in one of the several health care or research facilities. London is also home to several large corporations. There are excellent restaurants, theatres and many community-oriented events, all of which enhance family life.
For big-city sports or entertainment, Toronto and Detroit are 2 hours away by car or train. The town of Stratford with the Stratford festival is a 40 minute drive from London. For sports lovers, London has much to offer with sailing either on Fanshawe Lake (in the city) or on Lake Huron, cross country skiing on groomed trails in Fanshawe Park, downhill skiing at the London Ski Club, mountain biking, hiking, cycling and rollerblading along the Thames River (20k of connected paved paths) and golfing, not to mention the usual complement of tennis and squash clubs etc. There are a variety of summer festivals in the downtown area.
