While rotating through the AP residents are centered in the AP division services on the 3rd floor of the hospital, where they are provided with a personal desk in an office with two or three other residents. These offices are located in the same hallway as the faculty, resulting in a collegial atmosphere as rich with laughter and banter as it is with interesting case discussions. Sign-outs occur either at one of the multi-headed scopes that pepper the hallways or at dual-headed scopes in faculty offices which offer mountain views.
The grossing and frozen section suite is located one floor down – immediately across from the operating rooms – and offers abundant space, customizable grossing benches, and multi-headed scopes for frozen section interpretation.
The autopsy suites are located several floors down on the ground floor and offer modern facilities with two locker rooms and showers, which can be utilized by trainees who choose to grab some mental health miles or strength work in the house staff gym as a break during a preview evening.
Residents on clinical pathology rotations are located a 5-10 minute walk across the hospital in newly renovated office space which is proximal to the hematopathology, genomics, and cytogenetics laboratories as well as the Laboratory Medicine faculty offices, facilitating easy interactions. The new CP resident office boasts large windows, ample breakroom/kitchen space, conference area with large screen television, dual-headed scope, and personal desks for each CP resident and clinical chemistry fellow. The CP office is also an easy 5 minute walk to “The Corner,” which features several popular restaurants that offer easy take-out lunch options as well as quick access to a CVS Pharmacy.
Most of the resident conferences and seminars occur in this room located next to the resident offices. There is a brand new microscope camera, a large selection of journals, and a multi-headed scope. Please refer to the conference schedule to learn more about the resident lectures and seminars.
The resident library is located in one of the multi-headed scope rooms near the resident offices. The library contains a large selection of recently published books for resident use. Fortunately, most of the reference books are too heavy to remove, so our collection remains relatively complete. There is also a smaller reference library in the surgical pathology suite located on the second floor of the hospital. The medical center library provides 24 hour on-line access to a wide selection of pathology journals.
