Pathologist - Division of Anatomic and Molecular Pathology at Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau, Missouri

The Department of Pathology & Immunology at Washington University School of Medicine is recruiting a third Pathologist (at any faculty rank) to join the Division of Anatomic and Molecular Pathology at Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The successful candidate will provide expertise in general surgical pathology and cytopathology for 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 of the SoutheastHEALTH system includes a wide variety of challenging and interesting surgical pathology cases, with approximately 12,000 surgical and non-Gyn cytology specimens annually. The centralized laboratory medicine operations of the SoutheastHEALTH system utilize a fully automated instrument line and perform over 3 million tests per year including chemistry, hematology, and microbiology diagnostic services. The blood bank issues approximately over 4600 units of red cells annually. The SoutheastHEALTH system centralized laboratory is CAP certified, and also has an AABB certification.


While the pathologist position is 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 pathologist 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:
