Commuting Across Lake Washington on the Evergreen Point Bridge


The one-year training program exposes the fellow to a comprehensive and integrated diagnostic approach that unites the clinical and anatomic laboratories. We provide service for a full range of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialties that utilize in-house ancillary methodologies including immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy, flow cytometry, molecular diagnostics and cytogentics, in addition to standard AP and CP laboratory practices. The fellow will also be involved in pediatric and perinatal autopsies and will have the opportunity to oversee rotating pathology residents. The aim is for the graduate to be able to function as an independent practitioner in pediatric patient care. Our staff of five MD's and six PhD's enjoys an outstandingly collegial relationship with each other and our clinical colleagues. 1 position/year


Applicants should have completed training in an approved residency program in AP or AP/CP and be American Board of Pathology certified or eligible.
