Discipline of Laboratory Medicine

Message from the Chair

"Our discipline is dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, and clinical service. We presently have 32 full and part-time faculty, 2 cross-appointed faculty, 4 adjunct faculty, and 9 residents. We also have 21 part-time faculty in New Brunswick.

Our Diagnostic and Molecular Pathology Residency Program is fully accredited with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Our faculty work closely with our residents and our residents are successful not only in their Royal College examinations, but also in securing employment within our province and elsewhere in Canada.

Our discipline encompasses pathology, infectious disease and microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry, hematology, cytogenetics, and molecular genetics. Our faculty are striving for excellence in their individual fields.

I invite you to browse through our website and become familiar with our faculty, residents, and their achievements."
