Dr. John Carney Rejoins Pathology Faculty

On Jan. 15th, 2024, John M. Carney, MD, rejoined Duke Pathology as assistant professor of Pulmonary/Thoracic, Cardiovascular, and Autopsy Pathology. 

He most recently served as assistant professor at the University of Rochester Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in Rochester, New York, which he joined in 2022. 

Carney attended Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska, in 2013 for undergraduate medical school training. In 2017, he completed his Anatomic Pathology/Clinical Pathology residency training at Duke University, where he served as co-chief resident from 2015-2016. He followed that training with a Thoracic Pathology fellowship at Duke under the guidance of Victor Roggli, MD, Thomas Sporn, MD, and Elizabeth Pavlisko, MD, which he completed in 2018.

He remained at Duke on faculty, serving as assistant professor from 2018-2022, where he focused on Thoracic Pathology. During that time, he directed the Post-Sophomore Fellowship in Pathology, and was also involved in the Duke School of Medicine pathology course, teaching small group sessions from 2014-2022. He also served as the assistant course director from 2021-2022.  

Carney’s clinical interests include non-neoplastic pulmonary pathology, with a focus on pneumoconiosis and interstitial pneumonia. He’s also interested in pleural malignancies.  In addition to his clinical interests, he also enjoys teaching medical students, residents, fellows, and pathologists’ assistants.

“I look forward to getting started back in the department,” said Carney. “During my time at Duke and the University of Rochester, I have been fortunate to be involved with the Program's Clinical Competency as well as Program Evaluation Committees. My additional interests and goals include seeking out and prioritizing opportunities to be involved within the lab, as well as the hospital/institution in general; and finding ways to be involved in state and national/international societies as they arise.” said Carney.
