Overview

The Department of Pathology is a critical core service in the nationally-recognized Duke Health Systems and School of Medicine, serving three hospitals, community practices, and the Durham VA Hospital.

Encompassing surgical pathology, clinical laboratories, autopsy services, research, and bio-banking, as well as educational programs, Duke Pathology is an essential and integral part of the patient care team. One of the founding departments when Duke Hospital opened in 1930, Pathology has a rich history and continues to be a part of the vibrant Duke Health community. As part of a leading national hospital, we are responsible for over 50,000 surgical pathology specimens per year, and 8 million laboratory tests. Many of our specimens are unusual and complex. This exposure, which creates experience and depth in our diverse faculty, serves our patients with the highest quality.
