Surgical Pathology

A Resident's day-to-day on the Surgical Pathology Rotation 

The surgical pathology rotation is organized into five subspecialties (Derm/bone and soft tissue, genitourinary, breast/gyn, gastrointestinal, and ENT/lung). Residents are assigned 2 two-week blocks of subspecialty benches for each four week rotation. We follow a three-day cycle where we gross on the first day and preview and sign out cases the following two days.

In addition to the five core benches, senior residents also have a required 4 week rotation in neuropathology and 2 week rotation in placental pathology.
