Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Master of Science
The UBC Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is an academic department of the UBC Faculty of Medicine, and has major responsibilities and leadership in activities related to education, research and academic practice.
The Department is characterized by its breadth and depth of its activities in all spheres of inquiry and education concerning the causes and mechanisms of disease, advancing the practice of the various disciplines of Laboratory Medicine.
Departmental faculty, staff, trainees and other personnel work at multiple sites across the UBC system, in partnership with Regional Health Authorities, Hospitals and Agencies, Research Centres and Institutes, Educational Institutions, Government and other stakeholders toward fulfillment of the academic mandate.
