The Pathology Service

The Anatomic Pathology laboratories occupy 30,000 square feet on six floors of the Warren Building and one floor of the adjacent Blake Building. The combined Clinical Laboratories are located mainly in the contiguous Jackson and Gray Buildings. The Immunopathology and Electron Microscopy Units are located on the fifth Floor of the Warren Building. Research space includes over 40,000 square feet divided among four main facilities at Mass General, Charlestown, and Charles River Plaza.

Library Facilities

The Pathology Department's Mallory Library contains current pathology journals, such as Nature, Science, Cell, and more. A library for the use of the clinical pathology residents is adjacent to the Clinical Pathology residents' office. Both are open 24 hours a day. Treadwell Library is well equipped with a wide range of journal titles, textbooks, and bibliographic search capabilities. Treadwill Library is open until 8:00 weekday evenings, and 4:00 pm on the weekend. Harvard Medical School's Countway Library is three miles away and is one of the largest medical reference libraries.

Information Management

Anatomic Pathology uses the IMPAC PowerPath computer system for specimen and data management. The Clinical Laboratories use the Misys system. All anatomic and clinical laboratory results are available on the MGH/Partners’ Clinical Application Suite (CAS). Each resident has a personal computer at his/her desk. An additional twenty-five computers are available for the use of the residents. All computers are equipped to access PowerPath. BRS Colleague, Medline and other clinical and research information search tools are also available on these computers.

Photography and Text Slide Preparation

The Photography Unit in the Pathology Department take both gross photographs and photomicrographs. The Unit prepares projection slides and posters for conferences and lectures. In addition, the photographers teach residents these skills and are available for consultation. Residents are encouraged to photograph interesting specimens and are given copies for their own collections.
