AP/CP Board Certified Pathologists
Tupelo Pathology Group
TUPELO, MISSISSIPPI (USA).
Tupelo Pathology Group, based at North Mississippi Medical Center (NMMC), is searching for an
AP/CP board certified pathologist to join our practice, with the opportunity for future partnership.
NMMC, one of the largest non-metropolitan hospitals in the U.S., is a 650-bed regional hospital
serving 24 counties in Northeast Mississippi and Northwest Alabama. The medical staff includes more
than 50 specialties and over 200 physicians. Our ambitious system seeks to be one of the premier
community cancer treatment centers in the country.
Tupelo, an energetic town of about 40,000, has good public schools, no traffic jams, and real
estate prices that will seem incredibly affordable to those used to metropolitan living. If we lack any big
city amenities, they are available a short drive away in Memphis or Birmingham. Southeastern
Conference sports are available for enjoyment at two major universities within an hour's drive, and
abundant opportunities exist for outdoor activities.
Our pathology practice comprises approximately 20,000 surgicals, 6800 GYN- and non-GYN
cytologies, and 370 bone marrows. We actively participate in interdepartmental conferences dealing with
thoracic, gastrointestinal and breast oncology as well as a general tumor board. We take our CP
responsibilities seriously and enjoy helping our clinician colleagues solve clinical laboratory issues.
Our group currently includes board-certified subspecialists in hematopathology and
cytopathology. Because our practice is very broad, excellent surgical pathologists with just about any
subspecialty interest could fit in well with us, though subspecialty training in hematopathology, breast
pathology, GYN pathology, or GI pathology would be especially helpful. Both experienced pathologists
and fellows completing their training in 2019 are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should contact Dr. Sherry Okun, Medical Director of Pathology and Clinical
