Pathologist Assistant (PA)

The Rogue Valley in southwest Oregon is a great place to live for many reasons:  for the “Wild and Scenic” Rogue River that runs from Crater Lake to the Pacific, offering world-class fishing and whitewater rafting and kayaking; for Ashland’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival and skiing on Mount Ashland; for the proximity of the Pacific Crest Trail; for the surrounding wine country of the Applegate, Illinois and Rogue Valleys; for Medford’s revitalized downtown, amazing sports facilities and orchards; for Jacksonville’s historic old town and Britt Music Festival; for the limitless outdoor activities, including hiking, paragliding, back-country skiing, golfing and mountain biking. If that’s not enough, a 2-hour drive will bring you to the Giant Redwoods and the beautiful Oregon and Northern California coast.
