FULL-TIME PER DIEM PATHOLOGIST
Two adjacent but separate CLIA-certified laboratories are looking to hire a full-time per diem pathologist to sign out anatomic pathology cases (biopsies, surgical specimens, cytology specimens).
One of the laboratories is a high-volume physician-owned GI pathology laboratory which collects, processes, and interprets predominantly GI tissue biopsies (from both the upper and lower GI tract) from our affiliated endoscopy and surgery centers in Riverside, San Diego, and Orange counties.
The other laboratory is an independent general community pathology laboratory affiliated with the local hospital system (Southwest Healthcare) in the Murrieta and Temecula Valley areas with contracts with a number of outpatient and ambulatory surgery clinics (urology, OB-GYN, ENT, general surgery, dermatology, etc.).
The candidate will have experience in general pathology and cytology sign-out, and will work 2-3 days/week for each laboratory practice (commuting distance will be the same for each site since the laboratories are located across the street from one another).
This will essentially be equivalent to a steady part- or full-time job. The pathologist will need to obtain staff privileges at the local hospital system and will need to provide his or her own malpractice insurance benefits.
We are located in south Riverside County, about 1 hour north of San Diego.

SELECTIVE PATHOLOGY FELLOWSHIP
Opening for 2021-2022
The Selective Pathology Fellowship at City of Hope National Medical Center is a one-year ACGME program that offers opportunity to participate in oncologic pathology at a NCI-designated Cancer Center level to develop superior diagnostic skills, providing education in all aspects of surgical pathology beyond residency training. Our department reviews over 10,000 surgical specimens annually, most of which are related to solid tumors. Under the guidance of our ten expert staff pathologists, fellows will be provided with an enriched and unique learning experience in all subspecialties of complicated oncologic surgical pathology, as well as ancillary relates areas such as cytogenetics, immunohistochemistry, and molecular diagnostics. This program will give the fellows the opportunity to participate or present at the multidisciplinary tumor boards and conduct research projects. State of the art ancillary laboratories expose the fellows to new diagnostic and prognostic studies. Interpersonal and communication abilities, supervisory and management skills constitute essential components of this fellowship. Academic activities are fostered; ample material, resources, and expert guidance are available for participation in research projects. Faculty members are general surgical pathologists with specific expertise in subspecialty areas. Collegiately and friendly environment foster professional and personal growth.
The purpose of this fellowship is to train well rounded surgical pathologists who will develop their diagnostic skills. The overall goal is to provide oncologic pathology experience at City of Hope, so that the fellow develops superb skills in the diagnosis of a wide range of cancers. This will primarily be focused on developing these skills during the subspecialty rotations. Didactic lectures, Grand Rounds, slide seminars, patient care conferences, research meetings, and journal club are part of the educational experience.
