EMORY UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF PATHOLOGY & LABORATORY MEDICINE
HEAD & NECK/ENDOCRINE PATHOLOGY INSTRUCTORSHIP
We are currently accepting applications for academic year 2020-2021.
The Head and Neck/Endocrine Pathology Instructorship program provides one year of advanced clinical diagnostic training and sign-out experience involving a wide range of head and neck (H&N), salivary gland, thyroid and parathyroid specimens. Emory University’s H&N cancer program is one of the largest in the country and continues to expand, incorporating specialized surgical modalities such as robotic surgery and endoscopic skull base resection as well as proton therapy. A large variety of benign H&N specimens are also examined from Emory’s renowned Otolaryngology Department of more than 30 faculty, including laryngologists, rhinologists and otologists. The thyroid surgery program is very active and provides excellent case material in thyroid pathology. An active institutional program in oral and maxillofacial surgery, as well as an oral pathology outreach program, offers a rich and uniquely diverse training experience. The instructorship provides a period of active training during the first part of the year followed by graduated responsibility allowing for supervised sign-out of cases and intraoperative consultations. Instructors will have close interaction with clinical specialists through participation in intraoperative consultations, weekly H&N tumor boards and monthly thyroid tumor board. Elective time is also available for experience in other services. Ample opportunity for research exists and is encouraged. Requirements for MD, MD/PhD or DO: USMLE Step 3/COMLEX level 3, AP/CP or AP only American Board Pathology Certification, Georgia Medical Licensure. Requirements for DDS or DMD: Completion of a CODA-accredited Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology Residency Program, American Board of Oral Pathology Certification and eligibility for licensure in dentistry in the State of Georgia.
