What's the life of a general pathologist? How many slides do they read in an average work day, and how much do they collect from each slide, $35/slide, 30 slides/day? How long does it take for the pathologist to read a slide, on average? How would a myocardial biopsy that an interventional cardiologist took from the right ventricle to be examined for ARVD be prepared and interpreted? Do surgical pathologists get paid more, since there's more work for them? Would it be advantageous to start a group practice that includes a general internist, a general surgeon, a general pathologist, and a general diagnostic radiologist, b/c then you can save on costs?
