Neuropathology Rotation

Neuropathology Rotation

pathology slideThe goal of the Neuropathology rotation is to give residents a basic understanding of the knowledge and practice of surgical and autopsy neuropathology. Resident education on the Neuropathology Service is multifaceted, consisting of participation in patient care, didactic sessions, self-instruction with study sets, and participation in conferences. All trainees that rotate in the Neuropathology Division serve as full participants on the clinical service and take increasing responsibility for cases as experience grows under the supervision of the neuropathology fellow and attending physicians. There are weekly review conferences, where all cases from the previous week are viewed and briefly summarized. Additionally, daily sign-out rounds occur at 2:00 p.m. in the Neuropathology Library/Microscope Room on the 14th floor of the Ninth and Jefferson Building with the neuropathology team. Additionally, there are many opportunities to attend brain-cutting sessions in a variety of settings. Each affiliated hospital has a brain-cutting conference weekly or bi-weekly, including the King County Coroner / Medical Examiner’s office.
