Pathology Student Interest Group

The primary objective of Pathology Student Interest Group (PSIG) in the UNMC Department of Pathology and Microbiology is to encourage enthusiasm for pathology and to raise awareness among students about the crucial role pathology plays in modern medical practice. We hope to educate medical students about pathology as a career in medicine as well as providing mentors to students interested in pathology. The meetings are informal, interactive discussions between medical students, pathologists practicing at UNMC and in the community, and pathology residents on campus. Students will also be able to participate in experiences such as clinical laboratory tours, and other hands on activities.
