Job Description

Ohio based, Akron Children's Hospital seeks a Neuropathologist to join its growing team. Akron Children's Hospital is the largest pediatric healthcare system in Northeast Ohio and is ranked among the best children's hospitals by US News and World Report.

Akron Children's Hospital is nationally ranked by US News and World Report in six pediatric specialties, and is an integrated healthcare delivery system that includes:

• Two free-standing pediatric hospitals

• 700+ providers, who manage over 1,000,000 patient visits annually

• A network of nearly 90 primary and specialty care locations

• Robust research and innovation endeavors

Akron Children's has a full-service laboratory, offering tests ranging from routine chemistry screens, blood cell counts and microbiology cultures to those requiring sophisticated instruments and techniques. The tests, while geared to children, can be performed on specimens from any age patient. Three pediatric neurosurgeons provide a consistent volume of neuropathology cases, and we also receive adult consult cases from the region.

Many sections of the lab participate in medical research and the evaluation of new tests and techniques.

Our laboratories for cytogenetics, molecular diagnostics, virology and electron microscopy, as well as our Neuropathology, renal pathology and fetal pathology services, are the only ones of their kind among area hospitals and serve as regional referral centers. The department's Pediatric Pathology fellowship program provides exceptional training. Academic appointment at Northeast Ohio Medical University is available and commensurate with experience.

The successful candidate will have board certification in Neuropathology and Anatomic Pathology; additional training in Clinical Pathology and/or Pediatric Pathology is a plus. Join an established group of eight Pathologists and two PhD laboratory directors.
