Rotation Structure

During the one-month rotation, residents are intricately involved in learning how to provide excellent clinical care by understanding normal and abnormal morphology, reviewing clinical cases daily, ordering appropriate special stains, constructing comprehensive pathology reports including grading and staging criteria, and communicating with clinicians.

Daily Schedule

This rotation is based on a two-day cycle:

  • First day
    • Morning GU biopsy sign-out
    • Gross GU specimens after morning sign-out is completed
  • Second day
    • Morning GU biopsy sign-out
    • Afternoon sign-out of grossed GU surgical specimens (with same attending)
    • Review important GU lesions in study sets
Subspecialty Conferences
  • Genitourinary Tumor Board, every other Monday
Research Opportunities

There are ample opportunities for clinical and translational research in GU pathology with a focus on prostate cancer, and to interface with molecular or translational pathology.
