Dr. Jorge E. Novo was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, and moved to the United States when he was 16 years old. He graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School (now known as McGovern Medical School at UT Health). He completed his residency in anatomic and clinical pathology at Rush University Medical Center, following fellowship training in Breast Pathology at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine, and Gynecologic Pathology at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He returned to Chicago as an Assistant Professor at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in 2019. Jorge enjoys the academic life, teaching residents while exploring new music genres and talking classical music, movie scores, and random topics. His interests include education-based research, quality improvement, global health, breast atypia, ovarian neoplasms, and trophoblastic disease. When not being a pathologist, he enjoys weight training, tattoos, taking care of his numerous plants, trying new restaurants, feed his coffee addiction, and movies (both highly acclaimed and artistic films and terrible B-movies in the form of Rifftrax and mystery science theater 3000).
