so 4 of 12 are doing additional fellowship training and how many of the other 8 were one their second or more fellowship? i'm bothered by the fact that in most specialties, if you do residency you're actually able to go out, get a job, and function in that job. but that doesn't seem to be at all the case for pathology.
if 4 years of AP/CP training is really inadequate, why not let the training requirement reflect that? and if that were to happen, i wonder if my subspecialty (forensic) would then become its own residency, since (and kc, chime in if you disagree) we'd probably be better served by a 4 year program of FP, NP, and a bit of AP, rather than 4 years of AP/CP, 95% of which has 0 relevance to the practice of forensic path day to day.

Overall, everyone who looked for a job got one. Many fellows were completing the first of multiple fellowships, so I can't count that against them.
surgpath fellows: 1- hemepath fellowship, 1-GI fellowship, 1- molecular fellowship, 1- Academics, 2- private practice
Hemepath fellows: 1- Molecular fellowship, 1- dermpath fellowship
Molecular fellows: 1- private practice, 1- academics
dermpath: private practice
1 cyto fellow: private practice
There are a few others I don't know where they are going...
