Hi, I was wondering if you could give me some advice regarding 4th year electives in path...how many are necessary for path residency application? What are the general expectations of a medical student before they do the elective? What would you recommend I do this year in preparation so that I can make the best impression? I was thinking that maybe I should review all my histology throughout the year and re-master the subject, as well as master webpath completely before I do any path elective. It is a tall order nonetheless because coming up this year I have surgery, OB, family remaining, then I will start probably an AI, then study for step II, then I will do a couple of path electives. Also, I have to decide what to do for an AI. I am ultimately interested in hematopathology. I am debating whether to do an AI in adult general internal medicine, or in peds-heme/onc. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
