Dr. Jonathan McHugh named Director of Surgical Pathology

By David Lucas | December 8 2015

It is my pleasure to announce Dr. Jonathan McHugh as the new Director of Surgical Pathology beginning on December 15, 2015. With expertise in head and neck pathology, Dr. McHugh brings outstanding diagnostic skills, extensive academic accomplishments and credentials, and top-rate organizational and teaching skills to this position. Originally from the Midwest, he did his undergraduate and graduate studies at University of Missouri in Columbia and attended medical school at University of Nebraska Medical School. He completed his residency in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the University of Michigan where he also served as Chief Resident. Following a Head and Neck Pathology Fellowship at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Dr. McHugh returned to the University of Michigan and joined the faculty in July 2007. He soon became the “go to guy” not only for head and neck cases, but for his broad expertise in surgical, bone and soft tissue, gastrointestinal and frozen section pathology. In 2010 Dr. McHugh was promoted to Associate Professor, became Director of Immunohistochemistry and joined the Anatomic Pathology Operations Committee. He has been a fantastic teacher and mentor of our house officers and medical students, and serves as a member of the Medical School Executive Committee. Dr. McHugh has published over 120 peer-reviewed papers and multiple chapters, and presented talks at numerous national and international meetings and educational seminars. He has collaborated on numerous funded scientific projects and clinical trials, including serving as co-investigator on the NIH Head and Neck SPORE grant. Dr. McHugh is married to Carly Tarr, an emergency physician at Henry Ford Fairlane Medical Center and they enjoy living in a natural setting in Ann Arbor. Please join me in wishing congratulations to Dr. McHugh in his new appointment as Director of Surgical Pathology.
