Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital is proud to announce that Rebecca Yorke, MD, pathologist on the medical staff at the northwest Houston hospital, was recently appointed by her peers to serve as President of the Houston Society of Clinical Pathologists for the 2009 – 2010 academic year.
“The Houston Society of Clinical Pathologists is an organization that brings together all pathologists in the Houston-Galveston area including those in the academic arena, those in private practice, and those in training,” said Dr. Yorke. “By offering scientific symposiums and encouraging interaction between pathologists in diverse areas of practice and points in their careers, the organization is able to maintain a strong tradition of continuing education and advancement of the field of pathology.”
The Society will be hosting its 50th Annual Spring Symposium this academic year, a day long event that attracts internationally recognized pathologists to speak on recent developments in the field. “By bringing together the talent and knowledge of both local and internationally recognized pathologists, we will continue to improve pathology for the health of our patients and of the community,” explained Dr. Yorke.
