Pathology & Immunology

Pi - Amp


Commensurate w/Experience


The Department of Pathology & Immunology at Washington University School of Medicine is recruiting two Pathologists (at any faculty rank) to join the Division of Anatomic and Molecular Pathology. The pathologists will be based at Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  The successful candidates will provide expertise in general surgical pathology and cytopathology, as well as medical directorship for the clinical laboratories of the SoutheastHEALTH system hospitals and clinics.  Board certification in anatomic pathology and clinical pathology, and eligibility for licensure in the State of Missouri, are required.

Excellence in diagnostic surgical pathology and laboratory medicine is expected. The clinical service includes a wide variety of challenging and interesting surgical pathology cases, with approximately 8,500 surgical cases per year.  The centralized laboratory medicine operations of the SoutheastHEALTH system include standard chemistry, hematology, and microbiology diagnostic services and a blood bank with annually transfuses over 3700 units of red cells, in addition to testing performed at other health system facilities. 

While the pathologist positions are based in Cape Girardeau, the professional practice components will be supported by and integrated into the operations of the Department of Pathology and Immunology.  Thus, the pathologists will interact with, and be supported by, other pathology faculty across the full range of subspecialty areas in both surgical pathology and laboratory medicine.

Individuals completing their fellowship training, and also individuals who are in practice, are encouraged to apply. Salary is based on background and experience.  Interested candidates should submit their curriculum vitae and three references to:
