Surgical Pathology

Surgical pathology at Vidant medical center is a rich and diverse field. As a governing pathology entity that covers almost half of the great state of N.C., we encounter all specimens in all ranges of complexity.

During your work day, you will quickly grow to appreciate a learning oriented 3 day Surge Path cycle that starts with grossing, followed by a whole day of previewing slides and lastly, to complete the trifecta, a day devoted to engaging in frozen sections in the morning and double scoping with the attendings after 2pm. During your first year you will work with a senior resident who will guide you through the grossing experience, as well as have support and supervision from 4 full time experienced Pathology Assistants.
We pride ourselves on our ability to encourage teaching at all levels. As a resident you will be able to teach and give classes from any field in surgical pathology to your coresident as well being able to lecture pathology classes at the Brody SOM, right down the hall from Vidant Medical center.

If you are interested in having a complete, inclusive Surgical pathology training that won’t make you feel like just a number, then we strongly encourage you reach out and become part of work family.
