Teaching Facilities of the Pathology Residency Program

The 500-bed University Hospital opened in 1968 as the principal teaching hospital of the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio. We were recently ranked the #1 hospital in the San Antonio metro area and among the top 50 nationally by U.S. News & World Report. The Chairman and faculty members form the professional pathology staff of the hospital. The majority of the Pathology Services activities, including the gross room, frozen-section area, sign-out areas, clinical laboratories and resident’s room are located in contiguous space at both teaching hospitals. UHS Pathology Services are located on the third floor a short walk from the cafeteria and are connected to Sky Tower and the VA Hospital by a skywalk. The grossing activities are attended by numerous support staff including a pathologist assistant. Sign out with the faculty is located in a space that is immediately adjacent to other Pathology functions. Residents have a state of the art Olympus SC50 Microscope Digital Camera with CELLSENS software attached to a microscope and computer in the resident's office. They are also provided their own desk and microscope and have access to multiple computers, the resident’s library and the University Library.
