Applying to Residency in the United States

July 11, 2024 11:00 AM US/Eastern

The pathology residency application process in the United States is often described as confusing, overwhelming, and frustrating, filled with obstacles and hurdles. This is exacerbated by candidates having so little exposure to the discipline during medical school. 

What’s more, there are very few information resources available and little in the way of advice and mentorship for applicants. 

The good news is that there are people in the pathology world who want to change this situation, and make pathology a more attractive and accessible option for medical students. 

Whether you are considering pathology as a career option, or are involved in pathology education and training, join us in conversation with the people who are making a difference.
