Welcome to the Department of Pathology & Molecular Medicine

Welcome to the Department of Pathology & Molecular Medicine

This is an exciting time of growth, innovation and success for our Department which is uniquely placed at the interfaces between basic biomedical sciences, clinical laboratory services and the emerging field of personalized molecular medicine. Our clinical faculty membership has been rejuvenated and expanded over the last two years with no less than 10 success recruitments, 4 of which represent newly funded positions. We are also looking to expand our basic science programs and are actively recruiting a Tier 1 Bioinformatician and also a translational basic science researcher.

DPMM is home to many vibrant research programs with focussed areas of excellence including cancer biology and molecular hemostasis. We host the Queen’s Laboratory for Molecular Pathology core research facility and also the Canadian Cancer Trials Group tumour bank. The well established DPMM Graduate program offers Master’s and PhD degrees and a recently added a combined BScH/MSc degree that allows students to transition 4th year undergraduate research projects into accelerated Master’s degrees.

Our Anatomic Pathology residency program offers a very popular single site training environment with extensive one-on-one teaching by our collegial pathology team and is leading the transition to Competency Based Medical Education for Canadian pathology residency training. Queen’s final year pathology residents can be proud of their 100% Royal College exam pass rate over the last 8 years. DPMM provides a full range of clinical lab services to the Queen’s affiliated teaching hospitals and also to the entire south east Ontario region through our Outreach Laboratory Program.
