Hey guys--i am pretty focused on going into pathology, i just wanted to get some of your opinions on the following: The difficulty of the field. Path, as we all know is a very broad spectrum field (of course you can subspecialize--which narrows it up), but it is still a whole bunch of information! Other fields like Anesthesia, are more narrow in terms of knowledge base. I like routine things, so they are easier to master--which means less studying. Do you guys consider path a "routine" field, b/c once you see something enough you can point it out in your sleep. Also how difficult would you say the subject of pathology is compared to other fields. I know that the path residency is very nice compared to other fields, but is the knowledge in pathology tougher to grasp? I know difficulty of a field is a very subjective thing and varies from person to person, but it would be great if you guys could give me some of your ideas/opinions.
