PAMM 720 PATHOLOGIC ANATOMY 4 Credit Hours

ELECTIVE

The M4 student enrolled in this program rotates through the following four divisions of the department: Surgical Pathology, Cytopathology, Hematopathology and Autopsy Pathology. The pathology faculty, fellows and residents teach and supervise the M4 students during this experience. Students spend a week on each of the three services (Surgical Pathology, Cytopathology, and Hematopathology) with the option of observing an autopsy at any time during the rotation. While on the surgical pathology service, the students spend half of their time in the gross room assisting the pathology resident in the gross examination and processing of surgical specimens. They spend the other half of their time microscopically examining surgical specimens with a staff pathologist and resident. While on the cytology service, the student is involved with the microscopic examination of both gynecologic (GYN) and non-GYN cytology specimens with a staff pathologist and in observing fine needle aspirations (FNA) performed by staff pathologists. Students also participate on the autopsy service where they assist the resident pathologist in performing autopsies. The students are expected to attend all of the 8-9 a.m. resident teaching conferences. The students are also expected to attend one interdisciplinary conference per week. At the end of the rotation, the student is required to give a 15-20 minute presentation to the residents and staff pathologists on an anatomic pathology topic of their choice. Evaluation is based on attendance and participation in the rotation activities and conferences as well as on case presentations and the formal presentation at the end of the rotation.
