The Learning Environment
Pathology and Anatomical Sciences (PAS) offers instruction to undergraduate students requiring a fundamental Anatomy course to enter any of the health related programs offered at UB or elsewhere. Our undergraduate course is taught by our faculty (not students) and consist of lectures and laboratories (some demonstrations but mostly interactive) designed to introduce students to the anatomy essential to any of the health care programs. Many, if not all of these programs offered at UB require our course as a prerequisite. Laboratories offer ample opportunity for direct student/faculty interaction, but participation in UBLearns allows near universal access to assignments, announcements, and ready email communication with faculty and one another. Students seeking further direct interaction with faculty can do so via regularly scheduled office hours, or by special appointment.
About Our Facilities
Lectures are provided in large multimedia-equipped facilities with full IT support. Laboratories are offered on multiple days and times to maximize options, and in small class settings to provide comfortable and efficient student/teacher interactions. Models and specimens from our gross anatomy laboratory are regularly included in our labs, whereas other materials are provided by Biotechnical and Clinical Laboratory Sciences for a well-rounded perspective on human anatomy.
About Our Faculty
We are a diverse department with specialties of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the medical school campus, four university-affiliated hospital systems, more than 40 full-time and volunteer faculty as well as residency and graduate programs. The disciplines of pathology and anatomy, both based on the structure of cells and tissues, are the foundation of almost every clinical specialty. They are at the vanguard of discovery, diagnosis and patient care and they are arguably the most exciting and rewarding of all the fields in medicine and biomedical science. The mission of our department is centered around four main areas: education, patient care, research and scholarship and service to the region. Our educational efforts are aimed at medical and dental students, graduate students, residents and fellows as well as undergraduate education.
