Pathology Education for Clinicians

The Department of Pathology at Johns Hopkins offers numerous educational opportunities for clinicians.

Unknown Case Conferences

Unknown Case Conferences happen weekly in our department, where faculty members and residents identify unusual surgical pathology cases and assign diagnoses. These cases appear in digital form on the sites below, where you can learn about these unusual cases.

Surgical Pathology

Surgpath Unknown

Cases for each week’s conference are compiled by the surgical pathology attendings and pathology residents.

Cytopathology

Cytopath Unknown 2

Cases for each week’s conference are compiled by the Cytopathology attending and Cytopathology fellows or Pathology residents.

Pathology Twitter

Pathology twitter

Our department twitter account provides educational cases posted by our residents for training purposes.

iPad Applications

Our iPad apps span the spectrum from education for pathologists and trainees to patient education and comfort. Bright, easy-to-use, and chock-full of illustrations.
