Gynecologic Pathology

The Gynecologic Pathology service generates approximately 8,000 specimens yearly, with approximately 3,500 additional surgical cases handled by the perinatal pathology service.

Education

Faculty deliver quality assurance meetings and lectures to residents and rotating medical students, as well as weekly tumor boards in collaboration with Gynecologic Oncology. Several didactic lectures and lectures for reproductive medicine masters students are held yearly.

The division offers one, one-year non-ACGME accredited fellowship. The fellow will have graduated co-sign-out privileges of highly complex cases. Please visit the Gynecologic Fellowship page for more details.

Research

Faculty and fellows conduct translational research in the progression of uterine, cervical, ovarian and breast cancers. The research topics will focus on addressing diagnostic and pathophysiologic issues and targeting hot topics or fundamental questions in the field of GYN pathology.

Patient Care and Consultations

The division reviews over 300 consultation cases yearly from six divisions, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and regional and national Northwestern Medicine hospital affiliates.
