SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I don't need to know what time you wake up or sleep, or how many breaks you get, or how many times you go to the bathroom. I just want to know what things you get to do. Do you get stuck in the lab the whole day? Is it absolutely zero patient contact? Do you examine dead people? Do you look into a microscope the whole day? Do you examine, say blood samples, and figure out what's wrong? What kinds of things do you do? I realize that this post sounds a little dumb and ignorant to you. If any pathology residents out there can give me some input on what your day is like, I will appreciate it very much.
