  • Job Type


Department of Pathology


The Department of Pathology at Michigan Medicine is recruiting faculty to both junior and leadership roles in a newly created anatomic pathology hospitalist service that will support hospital-based anatomic pathology services, including primarily intraoperative consultations, in a large academic health care system offering a broad range of stat laboratory functions. Successful candidates will collaborate with existing faculty to manage and support operating rooms in co-located inpatient settings and remotely situated outpatient surgery centers. In previous years our practice averaged about 550 frozen section cases monthly and 40 frozen section blocks daily (range 10–140). This is a unique opportunity to create a novel hospital-based anatomic pathology service in a practice with high expectations for service delivery and diagnostic performance. Participating faculty will implement novel solutions, including digital platforms and competency assessment tools, to demonstrate and validate the value of skilled surgical pathologists in meeting intraoperative needs in a highly subspecialized practice. There will be opportunities to extend the model to other hospital-based services such as multidisciplinary conferences, adequacy assessments for image-guided fine needle aspirations, and autopsies. As a co-equal with more traditionally defined organ-based subspecialty services, faculty participating in our anatomic pathology hospitalist service will be fully engaged in all of our missions including education and research.


Applicants must be a doctor of medicine or a doctor of osteopathy, and certified in anatomic pathology by the American Board of Pathology. Preference will be given to applicants with fellowship training in surgical pathology or a related anatomic pathology subspecialty. Outstanding communication and interpersonal skills are a prerequisite. Experience in a high volume frozen section practice, whether in community practice or an academic setting, is highly desirable. Special consideration will be given to those applicants with sincere interest in extending the model to support of conferences, adequacy assessments for FNAs, and autopsies. A track record of peer reviewed publications and commitment to education are highly desirable but not required.

Whatever your interests and personal aspirations it is hard to find a better place to live.


This clinical track appointment will be at a rank commensurate with the candidate’s level of experience and accomplishments.
