Michele T. Rooney, M.D.
Dr. Rooney is a highly experienced pathologist, board certified in anatomic and clinical pathology, cytopathology, and fellowship trained in renal pathology.
Dr. Rooney received her medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis, MN. While there she completed a post-sophomore fellowship in pathology.
She completed her first three years of primary pathology residency training in anatomic and clinical pathology at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY and her fourth and fifth years at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester, MN. Her fifth year included a CAP-sponsored fellowship for molecular research. Upon completion of her residency, she remained at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine to complete her fellowship training in surgical pathology.
Following residency training, Dr. Rooney returned to SUNY Upstate Medical Center. For the first six months there, she functioned as a cytopathology fellow, enabling her to sit for the certifying examination in cytopathology with experience. In addition, she served as staff pathologist and assistant professor of the SUNY Upstate School of Medicine. She also served as Assistant Director of Surgical Pathology, and she was recognized in one year by the residents as Best Teacher in Pathology.
Four years later, Dr. Rooney became an attending pathologist in the Department of Anatomic Pathology at the William Beaumont Hospital (a 1,200 bed teaching hospital) in Royal Oak, MI. William Beaumont Hospital laboratories process a high volume of specimens from multiple surgical and medical specialties, which required generalist as well as a high level of subspecialty expertise.
During her time at William Beaumont, Dr. Rooney was well respected by her peers and became the go-to person for a number of subspecialties within surgical pathology. She gained experience in a high volume hospital laboratory with state of the art facilities in molecular and cytogenetic testing. In addition, Dr. Rooney served as Director of Residency Training in Pathology, Associate Professor at the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, and was a member of the Pathologist’s Board at William Beaumont Hospital, representing the largest anatomic pathology division.
At Beaumont Hospitals she trained on the job in kidney pathology and became part of the kidney pathology service. She subsequently sought formal fellowship training in kidney pathology at Nephropath Diagnostics, and she completed a fellowship there, modified for her advanced experience, in March of 2015.
Dr. Rooney is a member of the College of American Pathologists, a former member of the Tumor Marker Committee of the College of American Pathologists, a member of the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, the Renal Pathology Society, and the American Society of Nephrology.
