The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Rochester (URMC) School of Medicine & Dentistry, in Rochester, NY, is currently recruiting for an academic surgical pathologist with fellowship training and/or experience in GI and liver pathology. The successful applicant will have MD or MD/PhD degrees and be board certified in AP or AP/CP. The anticipated rank is open, commensurate with experience. The Department currently accessions over 55,000 surgical/biopsy cases per year through a recently renovated Surgical Pathology suite, which won a New York State award for its design. The Division of Surgical Pathology has undergone a transition to a sub-specialty sign-out practice model. Our volume of GI cases is increasing and now approaches 19,000 annually, which includes over 39,000 individual specimens. The URMC liver transplant/hepatobiliary surgery program is well established, having been in place for almost 20 years, and the medical program has three dedicated hepatologists whose clinical volume has doubled in the past three years, resulting in a growing number of biopsy specimens. Consequently, additional faculty with expertise in gastrointestinal and liver pathology are needed to help our current team of four report this growing work volume. The Medical Center has a highly collegial environment with many opportunities for collaboration and is rapidly expanding its active research programs. The GI Divisions of the Departments of Medicine and Surgery have funded investigators who are keen to collaborate with GI pathologists in clinical and translational studies. Furthermore, 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 a non-ACGME-accredited subspecialty fellowship position in GI/hepatobiliary pathology in addition to rotating pathology residents and medical students. With more than one million in the metropolitan area, Rochester, NY offers all the cultural, recreational, and educational amenities of a large city, but with nearby open spaces and lakes providing options for lifestyles from urban to rural, all with easy commutes.

The University of Rochester is one of the country's top-tier research universities. Our 158 buildings house more than 200 academic majors, more than 2,000 faculty and instructional staff, and some 11,100 students.
Learning at the University of Rochester is also on a very personal scale. Rochester remains one of the smallest and most collegiate among top research universities, with smaller classes, a low 10:1 student to teacher ratio, and increased interactions with faculty.
