Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency ProgramEdit

Most residents do AP/CP.

Surg Path: 3 day sign-out schedule: 1=gross, 2=recieve (AM frozens), 3=sign out (PM frozens until 6PM when on-call resident takes over). Residents distribute cases between themselves and the fellows on day 2, so you pick your own cases and any the PAs did you find interesting (PAs do biopsy grossing). Upper level residents do 'surg path fellow' rotations while the fellows are on elective and handle consults, RUSH cases, transplant biopsies. Derm, neuro, medical kidneys, heme and placentas are subspecialty sign-outs, all others are general, but residents personally show special or difficult cases to Attendings with a particular subspecialty interest before or after sign-out with the Attending on (so you see the general approach and also get the details of a subspecialty service). Residents order stains and see the results (early on you often run these by the fellows or faculty).

Autopsy: Teams of 2 or 3, usually 3 months. Usually on with student fellows (med students between 2nd and 3rd or 3rd or 4th year of med school). No Saturday autopsies (exception is metabolic autopsies, which are covered by the on-call resident, and occur rarely).
