Diploma of Specialized Studies - Pathology

Hybrid

Mission

The mission of the pathology residency program is to provide trainees the opportunity to acquire the subject knowledge, procedural skills, professional attitudes and practical experience. The main challenge remains the multidisciplinarity of both the diseases and the specialists to collaborate with.

Program Educational Objectives

1. Graduates must use their basic and clinical knowledge acquired during the specialization path in order to diagnose diseases and support the team for the best treatment of the patient.
2. Must collaborate with colleagues (their lab...
skills, their clinical skills) for a better diagnosis.
3. Must improve their knowledge and skills in parallel to the new technological discoveries and put them to the service of patients according to the rules of professionalism and ethics.
4. Have to practice their profession in accordance with the principles of quality, in particular the principles of efficiency and equity.

Program Outcomes

At the end of the program, the young pathologists will:
a. Master the basic knowledge in order to analyze the specimen, to then propose an adequate diagnosis.
b. Acquire deep knowledge in other specialties (nearly everything) to integrate the morphological pattern in the pathology of the disease.
c. Be prepared to use new knowledge and new techniques to improve their practice.
d. Master the gestures and techniques (biopsy, autopsy, cytopathology) plus those proper to the specialty and apply them according to the rules of professionalism and ethics.
e. Collaborate with other clinical or paraclinical specialists, respecting the principle of efficiency and in the best interest of the patient.
f. Share their knowledge with peers, students and other healthcare professionals.

MEDR930ASeminars and Conferences
Seminars and conferences represent both a learning and assessment tool knowing that the theoretical education of the resident remains mostly a personal work that begins with reading books and articles, preparing conferences and is ongoing with continuing medical education and self­learning (erudition). During development, the “apprentice doctors” must initially attend and listen to their elders, then submit records to the staff, then present lectures to peers and seniors locally (hospital) and in a local congress and finally in an international congress. In parallel and concerning teaching, it begins with clinical teaching to the youngest and finishes during university courses.
