A well-known, well-established molecular lab in the southeast is launching a sister lab in the Philadelphia area and looking for a Medical Director to oversee the build-out, implementation, and lead the Anatomic Pathology division from scratch. This CAP accredited pathology lab aims to create a new blue print of how molecular diagnostics are integrated into clinical practice, creating better diagnostics for a better future, and their molecular testing is already assisting patients with making important medical decisions.
