Presentation Transcript

  1. PATHOLOGY INTEREST GROUP David N. Bailey, M.D. Vice Chair for Education UC San Diego Department of Pathology September 18, 2012 UC San Diego Health System Center for Advanced Laboratory Medicine 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

  2. Purpose • To stimulate interest in Pathology as a career for those who have not decided upon a Pathology career and to enhance interest and information for those who have decided to pursue Pathology as a career

  3. Pathology Interest Group Meetings (2012-13) • September 18, 2012 (Ronald McLawhon) (Overview of Pathology; Tour of CALM) • November 15, 2012 (Robert Newbury) (Pediatric Pathology) • January 8, 2013 (Steven Gonias) (Physician-Scientists in Pathology) • March 21, 2013 (Scott VandenBerg) (Neuropathology) Liebow Auditorium, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

  4. TONIGHT’S PROGRAM • Overview of Pathology as a Discipline (David N. Bailey) • UC San Diego Pathology Residency Program (Brian Datnow) • Pathology Resident Panel (Deidre Amaro and David Li, Co-Chairs) • Tour of Center for Advanced Laboratory Medicine (CALM) (Ronald McLawhon)

  5. Why Pathology? • Interesting case material (broad and diverse) • Profession compatible with: - Teaching (e.g., in ISC – pathologists chair immunology, microbiology, hematology, and direct the pathology and histology threads) (popular teachers – multiple Kaiser awards; six campus-wide distinguished teaching awards)

  6. Why Pathology? (cont.) • Also compatible with: - Research and scholarly pursuits (some Nobel laureate pathologists, e.g., J. Robin Warren – h. pylori; Beruj Benacerraf – immunological reactions; George Whipple – intrinsic factor; Karl Landsteiner – ABO blood groups; Thomas Weller – cultivation of polio virus in tissue culture; Peyton Rous – tumor-producing viruses)

  7. Why Pathology? (cont.) • Also compatible with: - Administration (obviously chairs and directors of pathology – BUT also – chief of staff in medical centers and even medical school deans – e.g., Johns Hopkins, Yale, Loma Linda, U. Minnesota, U. Kansas, Ohio State University, Emory University, U. Wisconsin, UC San Diego, and UC Irvine) - Business (commercial laboratories)

  8. Why Pathology? (cont.) • Multiple subspecialties from which to choose • Potentially less hectic lifestyle • Salaries are good

  9. Selected Pathology Subspecialties • Anatomic Pathology -Surgical Pathology -Cytopathology -Autopsy Pathology -Forensic Pathology -Neuropathology -Molecular Genetics Pathology -Pediatric Pathology

  10. Selected Pathology Subspecialties (cont.) • Clinical Pathology (Laboratory Medicine) -Clinical Chemistry -Hematopathology -Transfusion Medicine -HLA and Transplantation -Immunopathology -Microbiology

  11. Subdisciplines • Many subdisciplines exist within the subspecialities (e.g., virology, mycology, bacteriology, toxicology, coagulation, enzymology, cytogenetics, molecular diagnostics, etc.)

  12. Where do Pathologists Work? • Medical Centers • Schools of Medicine • Medical Examiner’s Offices • Government (e.g., Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; VA Medical Centers; NIH) • Commercial Laboratories • Private Pathology Practice Groups Covering Multiple Centers

  13. Direct Patient Interaction Possible: Some Examples • Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology • Hematopathology (Bone-Marrow Aspiration and Biopsy) • Transfusion Medicine Work-up • Invited Consultations

  14. Pathology Clinical Selectives and Electives • Clinical Clerkships in Surgical Pathology, Cytopathology, Autopsy, Ophthalmic Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, Pediatric Pathology (four weeks in fourth year) • Selectives (two weeks – third year in surgery block) UC San Diego Surgical Pathology VA San Diego Health Care System – Anatomic Pathology Ophthalmic Pathology (They count as “surgical” selectives too!)

  15. Pathology Clinical Selectives and Electives (cont.) • Pre-Clerkship Experience in Laboratory Medicine (Fall Quarter – MS II; Winter Quarter – MS I/MS II)
