The Department of Pathology & Immunology at Washington University School of Medicine is recruiting a Pathologist (Voluntary Clinical Appointment) to join the Division of Anatomic and Molecular Pathology. The pathologist will provide general pathology and cytopathology services for Washington University Pathology Services, primarily serving at Memorial Hospital Belleville in Belleville, IL (in the greater St. Louis metropolitan region) and will assist with onboarding new pathology services in the St. Louis region (within an approximate 200 mile radius). Although the role will be to provide general pathology and cytopathology services, it is recommended to have subspecialty surgical pathology training in one of the following: gastrointestinal, genitourinary, or gynecologic pathology, but this is not required. Board certification in anatomic pathology and clinical pathology, and eligibility for licensure in the States of Missouri and Illinois, are required. 

The clinical service of the Memorial hospitals and clinics includes a wide variety of interesting surgical pathology cases, with approximately 8,000 surgical cases per year.  The laboratory medicine operations of the Memorial system include standard chemistry, hematology, and microbiology diagnostic services, and a blood bank that annually transfuses approximately 4,000 units of red cells.  The Memorial laboratory is CAP certified and has an AABB certification.

Education and Expectations: Candidates must possess M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees as well as Board certification for Anatomic and Clinical Pathology through the American Board of Pathology. Excellence in diagnostic surgical pathology and laboratory medicine is expected. General knowledge of and experience with digital pathology in clinical practice is recommended. 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.

The Department (http://pathology.wustl.edu/): The Department of Pathology & Immunology excels in basic and clinical research as well as delivery of outstanding pathology and laboratory medicine services. In 2015, the department moved to a new facility at the center of the Washington University Medical Campus. The Department provides a supportive environment for research and teaching.
