"I like that the main focus at Cancer Treatment Centers of America is on patients and their needs. This paradigm shift gives doctors a new freedom in their approach to patient care, and also recognizes that there is more to curing a patient than removing the cancer."
Dr. Jamie R. Mings
“It is very exciting to work in a place that fosters open interdepartmental communication and supports patient-pathologist interaction.” says Dr. Jamie R. Mings, a pathologist with Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Southeastern Regional Medical Center (Southeastern).
The role of the pathologist, as described by Dr. Mings, is to act as a liaison to the clinician. “We are able to look at a patient’s tissue or lab results and help guide the clinician in recommending a personalized treatment plan,” says Dr. Mings.
After graduating summa cum laude with a bachelor of science degree in biology, Dr. Mings earned a medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. She then completed residency in anatomic and clinical pathology at Scott & White Hospital at the Texas A&M University Health Science Center.
Dr. Mings has served in the military since 2000, and was named a Captain in the US Army Reserve in 2004. After residency, she came on to active duty in 2008. Before joining CTCA, she served as a staff pathologist at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center in Fort Hood, Texas, as well as Section Chief of Cytology and Section Chief of Microbiology/Parasitology. She was also the Medical Director of several outlying clinics.
“Serving in the military has taught me a lot about working on a team with a unified mission,” says Dr. Mings. “My first military duty station played a major role in shaping my career. I was very fortunate in that not only was my first duty station Hawaii, but I was surrounded by a well-trained, very experienced and caring pathologist.”
A member of College of American Pathologist and American Society for Clinical Pathology, Dr. Mings has been published in numerous journals and has given several poster presentations.
Dr. Mings lives with her husband and four children – three girls and one boy – who range in age from two to 10. As a family, they love to travel and especially enjoy cruises.
