PATH 302A. Surgical Pathology Clerkship (SUMC)     Open to Visitors
The purpose of this clerkship is to acquaint students with the activities of the surgical pathology laboratory, as well as to provide the opportunity for exposure to subspecialty pathology and/or autopsy, according to the student's interest. For students contemplating a career in pathology, this clerkship provides an excellent opportunity to develop basic skills in histologic diagnosis and gross room technique. Students interested in other fields will learn how pathology interfaces with other areas in medicine, as well as the basic sciences. It is possible to tailor the rotation to address special interests of the individual student; for example, a student may wish to spend two weeks on surgical pathology, one week in a subspecialty field (e.g., cytopathology, dermatopathology, neuropathology, hematopathology) and one week on autopsy. Alternatively, the entire four weeks may be spent on surgical pathology, if desired. When on the surgical pathology service, students are expected to attend intraoperative frozen sections, perform gross room duties, dictate descriptions of specimens, and to examine and interpret the histologic sections under the supervision of a faculty member. Attendance at surgical pathology conferences is an essential part of the clerkship. Please note: Visiting students must obtain approval from Rachael Buenafe-Jacinto prior to applying for this clerkship. Please email requests to rjacinto@stanford.edu.
