About the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathology

On July 1, 2020, the Departments of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology merged to form the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology with Dr. Geoffrey S. Baird as the Interim Chair.

A regional resource for clinical laboratory services required for innovative patient care, research and educational programs, we combine the sophisticated testing and informatics capabilities of fully accredited laboratories with the resources of an academic institution in its delivery of clinical and anatomical pathology services. Recognized for excellence in clinical training, world-class research initiatives, and a commitment to community service, we serve the five-state WWAMI region: WA, WY, AK, MT, and ID.
