ARUP Laboratories and The University of Utah

University of Utah's Department of Pathology to provide financial support to further the mission of the department and funding and logistical support to the University of Utah Hospital and School of Medicine. Today, faculty members from multiple departments in the medical school act as medical directors and consultants for ARUP's individual laboratory divisions.



Department of Pathology faculty members train medical students, residents, fellows, and graduate students in broad areas of pathology disciplines, including cell biology, immunology, molecular pathology, infectious diseases, clinical chemistry, cancer biology, and hematopathology. The department has a strong PhD program in experimental pathology, offering postgraduate and residency programs designed to mentor trainees in anatomic and clinical pathology and to train physicians for successful careers in academic pathology or community practice. Fellowship programs offer subspecialty training in a variety of areas, including molecular genetics, surgical pathology, pediatric pathology, clinical chemistry, immunology, medical microbiology, and hematopathology.

Pathology Services

Department of Pathology faculty members provide a full range of pathology services to the University of Utah medical center. The surgical pathology and cytopathology sections reside in the Huntsman Cancer Institute, whereas other faculty members are located in the University Hospital, the Emma Eccles Jones Medical Research Building, and the ARUP building.

Research and Development


Through ARUP's Institute for Clinical and Experimental Pathology®, department faculty members focus on the development of cutting-edge diagnostic assays, with the goal of improving patient health through more effective diagnosis and disease management. Over half of the nation's university teaching hospitals use ARUP for their esoteric reference testing and consult with members of the Department of Pathology and other departments in the University of Utah Health Sciences Center.

Medical Laboratory Science Education


The University of Utah offers several undergraduate and graduate education programs through the Department of Pathology's Division of Education, including an associate degree program for medical laboratory technicians, jointly sponsored with Salt Lake Community College; baccalaureate degree programs in medical technology and cytotechnology;and a master's degree program.
