The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital provides our families with a comprehensive autopsy service. Our experienced team of residents, attending physicians, and neuropathologists perform services in the areas of neuropathology, fetal pathology, and non-forensic pathology. Our dedicated team performs each autopsy with respect and care for our patients and their families. Autopsies are performed at the request of the family member after consulting with their attending clinician. To check the status of an autopsy report please contact the pathology customer service office at (202) 784-3614.

Our team also provides educational opportunities for our residents and medical students with weekly meetings, autopsy conferences, and rotations with the D.C. Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
