Advanced Anatomic Pathology Rotation

During the third or fourth year of training, residents rotate through the Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center where they participate in a complete range of Anatomic Pathology services, including surgical pathology, autopsy pathology, and fine needle aspiration cytology. There is an emphasis on gastrointestinal pathology and neoplasia, which reflects the particular expertise of the VA Medical Center faculty.

The added responsibilities given to the resident on this senior rotation make this an important maturational experience. Regularly scheduled anatomic and cytology teaching conferences complement the learning experience.
