AIRP submissions

Instructions for R3's going to AIRP.
1) Select the case you would like to submit:
 - To find a suitable case, check the pathology report (the report will usually dictate whether or not a case has gross images, i.e. "the specimen has been photographed") OR check with Geoff Sheridan in IT GSherida at chpnet org or ask another resident who recently acquired the excel list.

2) For BI cases, Contact Dianne Caprietta DCapriet at chpnet org in the BI Surgical Pathology Office (11th floor, Silver Bldg, Ext 44-1747) to request slides.

3) For SLR cases, contact the pathology department at RH and they will direct you to the resident room extension and you should establish contact with one of the path residents who will be your point person for requesting to photograph and cut more slides. 

3) Once slides have been retrieved, please make an appointment with one of the pathology residents on site to take histologic photomicrographs (Residents room Ext 20-2383 if it is a BI case) at a time that is suitable for both parties.


If any questions, please ask Chiefs or Dr. Kamath.
