Given all the changes the last few years to community pathologists would you be interested in a 6 year-combined pathology/business program?

I just took the RISE special topics section and I'm pretty sure you need an MBA just to understand half the questions, let alone pass it.

PS, I thought Sigma Six was a G.I. Joe Cartoon :)
really? i thought the management questions on the RISE were easy...but then again, i'm into that kinda stuff.

No MBA needed to understand Pathology politics and/or business....just a bit of awareness. Pathologists have fallen behind on keeping updated with policies BEFORE they happen.....instead they seem to wait til they happen, and get caught off guard. it's time we wake up and learn how to anticipate, IMO.
