Residents in anatomic pathology will be assigned rotations at one of the three hospitals in the integrated pathology training program. These include; Oregon Health Sciences University Hospital and the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Rotations at the University Hospital are further divided between the autopsy service and the surgical pathology service. Rotations at the other two institutions are combined autopsy and surgical pathology rotations. During the 3rd and 4th years of residency training, as scheduling permits, residents may elect rotations in cytology, electron microscopy, dermatopathology, neuropathology, forensic pathology, renal pathology or research.
See administrative policies for information on duty hours.
The rotation schedule is constructed at the beginning of each academic year. Any changes to that schedule, must be approved by the Director of the Program and then reported to the Training Programs Coordinator.
When rotating off-campus (ie. Kaiser or Medical Examiners office) you will be responsible for completing any paperwork necessary to document your time there. Kaiser Regional Labs has a packet of information to complete for each rotation. You will receive the packet at least, one month prior to starting the rotation. Their security is strict and requires an access badge. As with on-campus rotations, you will need to complete an evaluation of the faculty you worked with and the rotation.
