Head & Neck / Endocrine Pathology Instructorship
We are currently accepting applications for academic year 2021-2022.
The Head and Neck/Endocrine Pathology Instructorship program provides advanced clinical diagnostic training and sign-out experience involving a wide range of head and neck (H&N), salivary gland, thyroid and parathyroid specimens. Emory University's H&N cancer program is one of the largest in the country and continues to expand, incorporating specialized surgical modalities such as robotic surgery and endoscopic skull base resection as well as proton therapy. A large variety of benign H&N specimens are also examined from Emory's renowned Otolaryngology Department of more than 30 faculty, including laryngologists, rhinologists and otologists. The thyroid surgery program is very active and provides excellent case material in thyroid pathology. An active institutional program in oral and maxillofacial surgery, as well as an oral pathology outreach program, offers a rich and uniquely diverse training experience.
The H&N service currently includes two subspecialty H&N-trained pathologists and one oral and maxillofacial pathologist. A growing consultation service provides experience in addressing more diagnostically difficult and unusual specimens. There is an active translational research program in H&N diseases within the Department of Pathology and in collaboration with oncologists, surgeons and radiologists.
The instructorship provides a period of active training during the first part of the year followed by graduated responsibility allowing for supervised sign-out of cases and intraoperative consultations. The year-long instructorship is based at Emory University Hospital Midtown, where the Emory H&N program is primarily located. Instructors will have close interaction with clinical specialists through participation in intraoperative consultations, weekly H&N tumor boards and monthly thyroid tumor board. Elective time is also available for experience in other services. Ample opportunity for research exists and is encouraged.
