Clinical Laboratory


As members of the medical staff, our academic faculty directs all laboratory services at Vermont's academic medical center, The University of Vermont Medical Center.

In addition to performing testing for The UVM Medical Center inpatient and outpatient population, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine serves as a reference and consultative service for many hospitals in the Northeast. We are the primary reference lab for the Northeast Community Laboratory Alliance (NECLA), a regional affiliation linking community hospital labs throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York. Mayo Medical Laboratories is also a founding member and partners with the network to perform very esoteric testing not offered locally.

The department comprises over 30 pathologists with a full range of specialties including dermatology, cytogenetics, pulmonology, autopsy, breast cancer and neuropathology. As a regional reference laboratory, we perform over 2.5 million tests annually. In addition, we have over 40,000 surgical cases and 1,400 consults each year. Our residency program currently accepts up to 17 residents and fellows. The program offers a combined curriculum in both anatomic and clinical pathology leading to board certification for both disciplines.
