Opportunities in Pathology for Students

APC provides a dynamic list of opportunities for students interested in pathology who are at varying points in their academic careers. This list is based on voluntary submissions from our departmental members at medical schools across the nation.

  • High School and College StudentsSeeking a summer or semester experience in pathology and laboratory medicine? Search below!
  • Bachelor Degree GraduatesSeeking a “gap” year experience to catch up on pre-med content, especially in pathology? Search below!
  • Medical StudentsInterested in pursuing a Post-Sophomore Fellowship (PSF) in Pathology, either for a full year or a condensed summer program? Search below! Also, check out the APC's Society of '67 Program Opportunities for the academic pathology pipeline.

Student Opportunities in Pathology 

The dynamic list below is not a comprehensive list! There are many other resources on the Internet for programs and experiences available, including listings at the AAMC and the NIH. This is a compilation of pathology-specific or inclusive experiences for students seeking opportunities. We recognize that people outside of APC’s membership and even outside of pathology departments may be responsible for administering these programs.


Pathology Departments and/or Academic Program Coordinators

Programs are categorized into three major areas:

  1. Post-Sophomore Fellowships for Med Students;
  2. Post-Baccalaureate Programs; and
  3. Internships for High School or College Students.
