Pathology Residency Program
In addition to the many opportunities for learning on the LLUMC campus, the department of pathology and laboratory medicine has chosen to provide a yearly book allowance for residents and tuition support for attendance at the Osler review course during the last year of training. Financial support for meeting attendance is also provided on a selected basis, with preference given to "local" meetings, and meetings in which the resident is presenting a paper or poster.
The on-campus Drayson Center provides residents with indoor sports facilities including, basketball courts, a weight room, volleyball courts, racquetball courts, table tennis, and floor hockey. Outdoor facilities include tennis courts, and football and soccer fields.
An extensive intramural sports program promotes friendly competition in softball, volleyball, football, soccer, and basketball.
Classes and training are available in many outdoor and recreational activities including rock climbing, camping, tennis, and marathon race training.
Local geography provides for a wide range of outdoor recreational activities, with mountains over 10,000 feet high including designated wilderness areas within an hours drive, several nearby lakes for outdoor water sports, the Pacific Ocean and beaches within less than a two hours drive, and the deserts only 1 to 2 hours away. Diverse cultural opportunities are also available within a one- to two-hour drive, in the greater Los Angeles and San Diego areas, as well as within the local Riverside, San Bernardino, and Palm Springs area.
