Department of Pathology
Texas Children’s Hospital

The Department of Pathology at Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) is seeking a M.D. (or D.O.) or M.D./Ph.D. board-certified pathologist to lead its Division of Anatomic Pathology. Academic appointment will be at the level of Associate Professor or Professor (with candidacy for tenure) in the Department of Pathology & Immunology at Baylor College of Medicine.

Texas Children’s Hospital is the nation's largest children's hospital and is ranked No. 3 in U.S. News and World Report's Honor Roll of Best Children's Hospitals. The recent opening of the Lester and Sue Smith Legacy Tower in 2018 added 640,000-square-feet to the TCH Main Campus, providing six new technologically-advanced operating rooms (total of 25 operating rooms) and expanded capacity with 84 ICU beds and 48 CVICU beds. TCH is home to nationally top-ranked clinical programs, including pediatric cardiology, cardiovascular surgery and pediatric pulmonary medicine. The hospital has one of the largest pediatric solid organ transplantation programs. Since 2012, the Pavilion for Women has steadily grown as a leading center for high-risk obstetrics/maternal-fetal medicine, adolescent gynecology, and fetal medicine/fetal surgery.

Texas Children’s is searching for a physician leader to direct its highly regarded Anatomic Pathology Division comprised of pathologists, pathologists’ assistants, and laboratory and administrative staff. This individual should be well established in her/his AP subspecialty and have leadership experience in academic pathology. Subspecialties within the AP Division include pediatric pathology, cytopathology, dermatopathology, and neuropathology. AP services also include autopsy pathology, gynecologic pathology, placental/perinatal pathology, renal pathology, transplant pathology, and ultrastructural pathology (electron microscopy). Faculty members are expected to contribute to scholarly activities, as well as pathology resident and fellow education. Our suburban West Campus and Woodlands hospital campuses and the Texas Medical Center offer exceptional opportunities for clinical collaboration and translational research activities.

Interested individuals must possess primary Board certification in either Anatomic Pathology (AP only) or Anatomic Pathology and Clinical Pathology (AP/CP) by the American Board of Pathology. Board-certification in Pediatric Pathology is highly desirable. Individuals must be eligible for an active, unrestricted Texas medical license.

Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. Candidates should send a curriculum vitae and personal statement of professional goals to:
