Hi All! Like many I am at that frustrating point where I have to begin seriously thinking about my future. I was wondering what the current thought is on the future of pathology as a specialty (particularly A.P.) I am not particularly concerned with whether or not there will be jobs available; I am convinced there will be. Rather how will technology, particularly radiographic/nuclear imaging influence the field? Will there be a decreased need for biopsies as PET scans and the likes become more sophisticated? Will the microscope continue to be a part of pathology in 20 years? What is the going feeling out there for people, like Great Pumpkin, who've had a chance to think about it? (Yup, I know, I am a perfect fatalist pathologist-to-be at heart!) Thanks all.
