ASCP Foundation Launches Campaign to Provide Financial Support to Pathology Residents Affected by Hahnemann University Hospital Closure
Date:8/15/2019

The ASCP Foundation has launched a campaign to provide financial assistance to pathology residents who have been directly affected by the closure of Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia, which is affiliated with Drexel University. With the support of donations gathered during the campaign, the ASCP Foundation will be making hardship grants of up to $2,500 per resident available to assist these pathology residents with travel and relocation funds and partial salary support as the residents make the difficult transition to new programs.

As a result of the Hahnemann University Hospital closure, more than 500 medical residents and fellows, including 21 pathology residents, were displaced. While residency program leadership has worked tirelessly to place the pathology residents affected by the closure at other programs, the residents face numerous financial challenges, including fees for breaking leases and continued payments for vacated properties when relocating to new cities. They also may lack salary support during the transition period if awaiting medical training licenses from other states.

ASCP is seeking donations to support pathology residents affected by the Hahnemann University Hospital closure. Visit the ASCP Foundation website to donate by August 31. One hundred percent of each donation will support ASCP Foundation Hahnemann Hardship Grants. All personnel and administrative costs are made possible with the generous support of ASCP.

“Our hearts go out to the residents who have been training at Hahnemann University Hospital. Their career paths have been dramatically affected by this distressing turn of events,” said ASCP President Melissa P. Upton, MD, FASCP. “ASCP is here to support these residents as they deal with these challenges and work to continue their medical training.”

In addition to financial grants, ASCP is providing pathology residents from the Hahnemann program with access to ASCP’s RISE PLUS materials covering board preparation and laboratory management so they can continue to study and learn during the transition period. The Society is also providing them with a continued complimentary ASCP membership through the completion of their training.
