Pathology

Medical personnel looking into microscopes

Our expert pathologists are key players in all health care provided by Yale Medicine. By studying bodily fluids and tissues, we help other physicians make diagnoses. We offer highly specialized diagnostic and consultation services in all major specialty and subspecialty areas of pathology.

Our subspecialists attend all tumor boards, or meetings in which a number of doctors from various specialties review and discuss a patient's medical condition and treatment options. 

We routinely provide expert advice and guidance for medical professionals and patients outside of Yale Medicine.

We pride ourselves on our rapid evaluation capabilities and our broad experience. Our subspecialist pathologists are on call around-the-clock, assuring that doctors working in oncology, surgery, transplantation and other service areas always have access to our expert knowledge.
