There are multiheaded scopes throughout the department, many connected to wall-mounted monitors to allow for larger group viewing (while maintaining appropriate distancing).
The conference room is located within the main department and supports both in-person and live-streaming of teaching conferences, including microscope sessions.
The grossing room is equipped with 15 benches, a bone saw, photography station, Faxitron Path+ radiography system – and natural light! All grossing benches are height adjustable and have voice dictation software.
We are fortunate to have an amazing team of Pathologists' Assistants throughout the room who play critical roles in patient care and resident education.
The frozen section room is equipped with 6 cryostats, 8 grossing stations, multiheaded microscopes, a photography station and adjacent break/workroom.
The fantastic "Team Frozens", consisting of multiple Pathologists' Assistants and a Pathology Specialist II, work side-by-side with the rotating resident to process an average of 20-25 frozen sections each day.
The Clinical Pathology section of the department is located very close to the Anatomic Pathology section, permitting abundant interactions between AP and CP residents and faculty.
The CP residents' room is directly adjacent to the laboratories, and the room provides a separate cubicle for each resident with computer and storage space as well as space for informal discussion.
The main laboratory, which houses specimen receiving (lab control), chemistry, hematology, microbiology and the blood bank, is home to state-of-the-art technology and many talented technologists.
Residents are involved in all aspects of laboratory medicine, including new test implementation, quality assurance, data analysis and clinical consultations.
Residents have numerous opportunities for hands-on learning throughout the CP laboratories, both with attendings and laboratory staff.
Examples include review of flagged hematology smears, teaching sessions at the mass spectrometers, unknowns in the microbiology laboratory and antibody workups in the blood bank.
The Center for Advanced Molecular Diagnostics includes both the Molecular Diagnostics service as well as Clinical Cytogenetics.
These two laboratories provide extensive, on-site genetic analysis for patients at both Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, including next-generation sequencing, microarrays and FISH analysis.
