About Evelyn V. Gopez, M.D.

Dr. Gopez did a fellowship both in cytopathology and surgical pathology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.  She staffs radiology guided FNA's, but gets more fulfillment in performing the FNA procedure herself.  She teaches basic pathology to medical students and cytopathology and FNA to Pathology residents and Cytopathology fellows.  She also teaches cytotechnology students. When she is at ARUP, she oversees the cytology practice and troubleshoots issues that come up during the day.  She signs out gyn and non-gyn cytology, Ufish and FNA's.  She is actively involved in the Cytotechnology program and conducts review sessions with the students in preparation for their registry board examinations.  She also conducts continuing education sessions for the cytotechnologists at ARUP.  After accepting the role as residency program director, Dr. Gopez has initiated major changes in the Pathology Residency Program that has led to better teaching and training and increased resources to support resident education and research.  Dr. Gopez is also actively involved in the School of Medicine Mentorship Program, where she mentors medical students both in their academics and also in preparing themselves for residency.  She is an advocate for residents and medical students.

As Assistant Dean of Inclusion and Outreach, Dr. Gopez is proud to lead the University's effort to support the success and achievement of medical students, faculty and staff regardless of race, religion, culture, gender and sexual preference.  She also oversees the School of Medicine's several outreach programs to the community.
