Joseph Rabban, III, MD, MPH
My clinical research focuses on 1.) diagnostic classification on gynecologic cancers, with an aim toward improvement of personalized tailoring of treatment decisions and tailoring of risk assessment for hereditary disease and 2.) early diagnosis of ovarian cancer (pelvic cancer), specifically serous tumors.
Inter-departmental collaboration is central to both my clinical service and research activity. I work closely with my UCSF colleagues in the OB/GYN, Gynecologic Oncology, Genetic Counseling, and Radiology departments.
My educational activity includes serving as the Program Director for the UCSF Gynecologic Pathology Fellowship; co-chair of the Education Committee of the International Society of Gynecologic Pathologists; and lecturer and course director of numerous continuing education courses offered by national (USCAP, ASCP, CAP) and international (IAP, ISGyP, SSI) pathology organizations.
My professional organizational service includes being Associate Editor of the International Journal of Gynecologic Pathology and Secretary on the executive board of the International Society of Gynecologic Pathologists.
