Seeking a full-time Pathologist Assistant

The Lab at PRHC:
Peterborough Regional Health Centre’s team of more than 100 highly-educated and skilled laboratory professionals performs 1.65 million vital diagnostic tests annually across our hospital, and for a number of partner hospitals in the Central East LHIN.

In 2016, our lab achieved ISO 15189 Plus Accreditation after meeting 2000 rigorous standards in eight specialty areas: chemistry, hematology, transfusion medicine, anatomical pathology, microbiology, cytology, point of care testing and pre-post-analysis. Of 211 accredited labs in Ontario, only 57 have achieved this internationally-recognized “gold standard” of accreditation.

Following a $2 million investment in 2015/16, our laboratory now features leading-edge, “one-touch” automation technology in chemistry – this upgrade has increased our capacity to perform more lab tests, more safely and efficiently, improving the level of care we provide for our patients.

The Opportunity:
Peterborough Regional Health Centre is seeking a permanent full-time Pathologist Assistant (PA) to join PRHC’s Laboratory team. Under the direction and supervision of the Medical Director and Pathologists, the PA examines and dissects surgical pathology and autopsy specimens, submits samples for histologic and other examinations, and dictates related gross descriptions. The successful candidate must be a graduate of an accredited Pathologists’ Assistant Master’s Program. Current certificate or eligible for certification with the Canadian Association of Pathologists (CAP) or the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) is required.
