Placental Pathology

Pathology & Lab Medicine

This rotation encompasses not only the gross and microscopic pathology of placental disease, but also the role of the surgical pathologist as a part of the multidisciplinary team managing the mother and newborn. In addition to daily review of placenta specimens, the resident is expected to assume primary responsibility for the fetal board. This will entail obtaining the conference agenda (in advance), reviewing previous as well as current pertinent pathology reports and slides, reviewing the findings with the attending pathologist, and presenting them at the conference. Following the conference, reviewed cases will be recorded as part of the ongoing AP quality assurance program.
