We are embarking on a new era in pathology training with the creation of a joint Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) residency training experience. BWH and MGH each have outstanding - but historically separate – pathology training programs, both located in Boston, Massachusetts and affiliated with Harvard Medical School. While the BWH and MGH pathology residencies have operated independently of one another for over 50 years, we are now coming together to provide a joint training experience, beginning in July 2023.
We will continue as separate programs through the fall recruitment season while awaiting ACGME review of our application for a new, fully integrated program, to be called the Mass General Brigham Pathology Residency Program. Therefore, to simplify the recruitment process, all applications for a residency start date of July 1, 2023, will be submitted through the existing BWH application pathway in ERAS. Residents who match into this program will spend approximately half their time at BWH and half their time at MGH, with fully merged didactics and conferences at both.
