Pathology Grand Rounds is a special event in our department, held monthly with assorted food provided.
Outstanding speakers, eminent in the field of pathology or related fields, discuss latest developments impacting Pathology. This is a clinically-oriented conference that highlights state-of-the-art pathology concepts and translational medicine. During this series, we have two named lectureships: the Shields Warren Lecture honoring the first Chief of Pathology at the Deaconess Hospital and our resident chosen “Visiting Scholar Professorship". These named lectureship speakers typically spend a day or days in the department holding special sessions with residents.
This year we were delighted to lead off our Grand Rounds Series with a talk by Harold Dvorak, MD, former Chief of BIDMC Pathology, discover of vascular permeability factor/VEGF, and leader in the angiogenesis field. Joel Greenson, Professor of Pathology at the University of Michigan, provided a vibrant and inspiring Shields-Warren Lecture on esophageal pathology: “Esophagitis is a Pain in the Neck”. Stay tuned for PGR lectures coming up by Andrew Beck, MD, from our department, describing translational developments in breast cancer evaluation from his research laboratory; a talk from noted pathology educator, Stephen Black-Schaffer, MD from MGH; this year’s resident invited “Visiting Scholar” Stacey Mills, MD, from the University of Virginia, and more . . .
