What does this say about the state of things? Apparently there is no analysis this year. Yeah, you know the usual, "the job market is "strong".

Among the key findings from the RISE survey:
  • More than 90% of pathology residents apply for additional fellowship training after completion of their residency program.
  • 61% of PGY-3 and PGY-4 residents intend to complete one fellowship.
  • The top five fellowships that residents intended to apply for, in rank order, are surgical pathology, hematopathology, cytopathology, gastrointestinal pathology, and dermatopathology.
  • Among residents who chose to go directly into the job market, about 40% received offers to remain as an attending at their training program. Another 40% failed to receive a job offer.
Highlights of the FISE and FISHE surveys:
  • About one-third of forensics fellows and about half of hematopathology fellows received multiple job offerings. A significant number (approximately 15%) of fellows did not receive job offers.
  • Most fellows found jobs fairly quickly, but one-fifth of hematopathology fellows were searching for at least six months.
  • Nearly two-thirds of forensic pathologists received starting annual salaries less than $150,000.
  • Three-fourths of the hematopathologists earned more than $150,000 per year to start.
