I've looked for info on training in Cardiovascular Pathology and have not been able to find much - only a couple of fellowship listings on pathologyoutlines.com. Does anyone know people who have specialized in this area recently? The first pathologist I met was a forensic pathologist who did coronary and renal atherosclerosis work and he collected a huge number of samples through the Coroner's Office. I'm starting residency in July with an open mind regarding the sub-specialty I want to pursue (I enjoy many aspects of path and could see myself in several sub-specialties). I'm definitely interested in an academic career and I like the idea of finding a niche that would allow me to do some basic research and still have some limited clinical duties. I enjoy autopsy pathology (in addition to surgical path) and am just thinking about options for incorporating CV basic research and clinical practice. I realize that it is a limited field with regard to reimbursement (post-transplant biospies and autopsies are the only uses that come to mind). I just haven't seen much written about this area, it's after midnight, and I'm bored. What are your thoughts?
