New York Medical College

Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences



The Department of Pathology at New York Medical College is a large multi-disciplinary department, and the only academic pathology department between New York City and Albany. It supports multiple research laboratories at the New York Medical College campus in Westchester County, and diagnostic anatomic and clinical pathology laboratories in the two major teaching hospitals of New York Medical College, Westchester Medical Center and St. Vincent's Medical Center. It is heavily involved in teaching medical students at New York Medical College, and offers a range of pre-doctoral graduate programs in experimental pathology at the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences. In addition to post-doctoral programs at the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences, the Department offers accredited residencies in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology for qualified medical school graduates at Westchester Medical Center and at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in New York City.

Research laboratories of the Department of Pathology and the Brander Cancer Research Institute are located in the Basic Science Building. Faculty in the Ph.D. program in Experimental Pathology also conduct research at the Munger Pavilion on the New York Medical College campus. Faculty research programs, supported by federal and industrial grants, include studies of mechanisms of biochemical toxicology, cancer cell biology, cell-cycle regulation and apoptosis, mechanisms underlying cell dysfunction after neurologic trauma, chemical carcinogenesis, free-radical pathobiology, hypersensitivity and chronic inflammation, molecular genetics of hypertension, Lyme disease, tuberculosis, and tissue engineering. Departmental faculty are also active collaborators in a number of national and international research programs.

Teaching is an important component of departmental activity. Besides providing major courses for the medical school curriculum in the second and fourth years, the Department offers Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) programs in Experimental Pathology, residencies in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, and an annual course on safety assessment of medicines.
