The Oregon Health & Science University Department of Pathology fills two one-year Surgical Pathology Fellowship positions per year. As the major tertiary care referral center for the entire state of Oregon, OHSU offers a full spectrum of surgical pathology material with an average workload of 20,000 cases per year, including substantial numbers of GI, GU, Gyn, head and neck, pediatric and soft tissue/bone cases. Assigned responsibilities include initial interpretation of biopsies, resection specimens, frozen sections and oversight of the cutting room. The fellowship may include up to three months of elective time, including your choice of rotations in hematopathology, dermatopathology, renal pathology, neuropathology, cytopathology, cytogenetics and molecular pathology. The fellow also is assigned to present unknown case conferences to the residents. Participation in clinical research activities is encouraged. Located on a scenic hill overlooking downtown Portland, the OHSU campus is less than 90 minutes from Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge and the beautiful Oregon coast, providing endless opportunities for outdoor recreation.
