Frozen Section

Pathology & Lab Medicine

The frozen section rotation is of variable duration. The resident will be expected to examine all frozen section specimens delivered for intra-operative consultation. He or she will also train younger residents and to instruct them in the art of gross examination. They will be responsible for interacting with surgical residents and faculty concerning frozen section diagnoses. He or she is also responsible for the transmittal of information from the frozen section room to the grossing room (information concerning special treatment of margins). This resident will also be prepared to render his/her frozen section diagnosis to the surgical faculty/residents after approval of the pathology faculty. Additionally, the resident will be responsible for all ultra-rush specimens and all neuropathology specimens (if there is no resident on the neuropathology elective rotation).
