The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry is currently recruiting an experienced cytopathologist at the Associate Professor or Professor level to assume the Directorship of the Cytopathology Unit. The University of Rochester has a long history of excellence in cytopathology and is seeking an individual who is interested in leading a unit dedicated to carrying on the tradition and embracing the growing opportunities for the use of cytology specimens in molecular diagnostics. Clinical activities will be focused on our active cytopathology service, and will include participation in our sub-specialty in surgical pathology practice. We currently have 54,500 GYN, 8,700 Non-GYN, and 1,200 FNA cases per year and accession >70,000 surgical/biopsy cases per year through Surgical Pathology, which has undergone a transition to a sub-specialty sign-out practice model, which includes GI, breast, genitourinary, head and neck, thoracic, GYN and pediatric/neonatal/placental pathology.
The Medical Center has a highly collegial environment with many opportunities for collaboration and is expanding its active research programs. There are multiple opportunities for collaborative research and for the development of clinical initiatives through interactions with Medical Center faculty in the Cancer and other Centers with interests in cancer biology, immunology and genetics. The successful applicant will be expected to develop a program in applied, translational, or basic research.
Opportunities for teaching are ample: we have an ACGME-accredited subspecialty fellowship position in cytology and non-ACGME-accredited subspecialty fellowship positions in genitourinary, breast and gastrointestinal pathology in addition to rotating pathology residents and medical students.
