Pathology Residency Program

Pathology Residents here at Johns Hopkins are fortunate to have numerous endowments in place in the Department to support their teaching and research endeavors. These endowments, because they exist in perpetuity, provide a wonderful long-term source of funding for our research. They also reflect the commitment of the Department to supporting our residents. They include:

Teaching Endowments

  • The Risa B. Mann, M.D. Fund
    This fund honors Risa B. Mann, M.D., a member of the Surgical Pathology service for 27 years, Director of our Residency Training Program for 17 years, and a nationally recognized hematopathologist. Throughout Dr. Mann's career, she was a staunch supporter and advocate for women in the field of Pathology serving as a role model for young women in pathology by showing them how to achieve success both personally and professionally. The Risa B. Mann, M.D. Fund provides support for resident research and education in the Department of Pathology.
