The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry, in Rochester, NY, is currently recruiting for a pathologist to provide coverage on the autopsy service; additional service responsibilities in a surgical subspecialty are possible for interested candidates. The ideal candidate will also have interest in cardiac pathology. Successful applicants must be board-eligible in anatomic pathology by the American Board of Pathology and be eligible for a medical license in the State of New York and Faculty appointment in the School of Medicine and Dentistry
The Department provides a very wide range of services; autopsy volume is currently approximately 225 annually. Surgical pathology is completely subspecialized and accessions 100,000 cases per year. The anatomic pathology division includes more than 40 pathologists.
