Baylor College of Medicine and Department Summary:

Since 1943, the Department of Pathology & Immunology at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) in the Texas Medical Center has enjoyed a national and international reputation of setting standards for the highest quality in clinical practice, research, and education of residents, fellows, medical students, graduate students, and undergraduate students (https://www.bcm.edu/departments/pathology-and-immunology).

Summary

The Department of Pathology & Immunology at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) is seeking an academically-oriented, highly skilled and motivated Renal Pathologist with outstanding diagnostic expertise to join our team. The role is primarily suited to BCM sites within the Texas Medical Center (the world’s largest medical center) including Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center (BSLMC), the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center, and Ben Taub Hospital. In addition, we envision renal pathology expertise to be applied remotely to our operation within our Community Pathology Associates network, which regionally serves over 40 medical facilities in Texas.  

 

The ideal candidate must have strong surgical pathology diagnostic skills, and medical renal/renal transplant pathology expertise is also desired with an ability to work collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team. The candidate is expected to contribute to the educational, scholarly, and translational research activities of the department. The candidate should be eligible for appointment at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor rank. Annually, our BCM pathology faculty in Texas generate diagnoses on over 170,000 surgical specimens that include a plethora of complex resections and biopsies. The successful candidate will be working closely with our solid organ transplant center and NCI designated Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center. Regular opportunities are available for teaching in the School of Medicine and the Graduate School.

 

Compensation is highly competitive and commensurate with experience, academic rank, accomplishments, and track record of achievements. BCM is an equal opportunity employer, and the department and college support inclusive excellence and diversity.
 

Minimum Qualifications

Interested individuals must be board eligible or board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology through the American Board of Pathology. Additional subspecialty training and board certification or eligibility in cytopathology is strongly recommended. Subspecialty surgical pathology fellowship training is desired but not required (GU, soft tissue, thoracic, or head and neck). Candidates with at least 1-2 years of surgical pathology signout experience are preferred, but new graduates are welcome. Candidates must also be eligible for an unrestricted Texas medical license.
