Job Description


The Department of Pathology at Texas Children's Hospital (TCH) is seeking to expand its faculty in the Division of Anatomic Pathology with a M.D., D.O. or M.D./Ph.D. board-certified or board-eligible pediatric pathologist. Academic appointment will be at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor (tenure-track) in the Department of Pathology & Immunology at Baylor College of Medicine. 


TCH is the nation's largest children's hospital and is ranked No. 3 in U.S. News and World Report's 2021 Honor Roll of Best Children's Hospitals, and in the top 5 in eight of the ten U.S. News & World Report-recognized pediatric subspecialties. The Texas Children's Hospital complex, located within the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical campus in the world, includes the original Abercrombie Building, West Tower, Legacy Tower, Mark A. Wallace Tower and the Feigin Tower. Within these buildings are a full range of primary to complex pediatric services, in addition to pediatric-focused research and administration. Adult services within the TCH complex include the Pavilion for Women, a stand-alone center for high risk obstetrics, gynecology, fetal medicine and fetal surgery; and the newly opened Adult Congenital Heart program, located in Legacy Tower. The broader TCH facilities network is comprised of the West Campus, a community hospital in suburban West Houston; and The Woodlands, the first hospital devoted to children's care for communities north of Houston. Scheduled to open in 2024 is the Presidio Campus, located in Austin, which will extend TCH's reach beyond the greater Houston area. 


Expansion in the size and scope of Texas Children's Hospital necessitates additional support in pediatric surgical and autopsy pathology, placental/perinatal pathology, solid organ transplant pathology, and cytopathology services. Additional subspecialty services include neuropathology, hematopathology, electron microscopy and gynecologic pathology. The combined annual surgical case volume exceeds 16,000 specimens from pediatric and gynecologic surgeries and obstetric deliveries, with approximately 3,000 additional cytopathology cases and 120 pediatric and perinatal autopsies annually. Within the Department of Pathology at TCH are additional Divisions of Genomic Medicine, Laboratory Medicine, Informatics, Transfusion and Coagulation, Community Pathology, and Discovery. 


Pathologists at Texas Children's Hospital have primary full-time academic appointments in the Department of Pathology & Immunology at Baylor College of Medicine, and are expected to contribute to educational and scholarly activities in the Department of Pathology based at Texas Children's Hospital, as well as pathology resident and fellow education.
