    Hey...

    For those of us who are just starting to get exposure to the field of pathology, is there a website or something that students can go to in order to see what kinds of things a pathologist can do, etc etc?

    Thanks.

    Title explains all

    I just found this one and it rocks:
    http://pathhsw5m54.ucsf.edu

    Others:
    http://www.pathologyoutlines.com/ (a classic)

    http://www.uic.edu/depts/mcpt/anatomic/

    http://pathology2.jhu.edu/gicases/

    http://162.129.103.34/prostate/

    http://pathology2.jhu.edu/ican/welcome.cfm

    Notice how much Hopkins puts out there on the web for free. I never trained at JHU, but I almost feel like I have seen Epstein speak tons of times at conferences (3x last year alone) and reading all this.

    PS- Want to trade (WTT) the full text and image CD-ROM of DeMay and the new Rosai CDs for the Osler AP/CP MP3 collection. PM me.

    This one may be useful:

    www.pathologyatlas.ro

    It has explained images of microscopy, with alt text when mouse on picture.

    www.uscap.org

    If you click on the "specialty conference handouts" link - there is a section on "house officers" which contains links to presentations that were given by Dr Fletcher and others at USCAP in regards to job finding issues, recruitment, etc...

    In the June 2005 issue of the Archives, there is a nice article on web resources for pathologists. It includes several websites that look pretty good. Here's a link to the article:Archives Internet Article

    It seems like this thread has two types of posts: one for med students looking for an overview of the field, and one for diagnostic/reference work.

    So in one post, here are the most commonly used websites at my program, in the latter category (some overlap with previous posts):

    PathologyOutlines.com
    WebPath
    UIowa VirtualSlidebox
    UVirginia Tutorials
    JHU Surg Path Unknowns
    Gleason Grading tutorial
    UCSF Pulm
    UMNDJ Bone Tumours tutorial
    The Osler BloodBank Guy
    Transplant Pathology - UPMC
    Weem's Derm

    This is a web site I operate that has a wiki with many entries (including photomicrographs and clinical photos) and also a message board for threaded discussions. It is aimed at residents, fellows, and attendings but also provides good information for students.

    http://pathologywisdom.com

    I am an oral pathology resident and have posted many entries, so you may notice a bent toward head and neck pathology.

    Randall Lee's "Diagnostic Liver Patholog" is available online at UPMC.

    http://tpis.upmc.edu/tpis/dlp/DLPHome.html

    It's from 1994 and out of print, but most of the GI staff I know still carry a copy. It's a cult classic, apparently.

    I found a website which references articles specific to pathology, in all different kinds of subjects. You can submit your own story, vote on other stories submitted, or just read them. I think it's a pretty new site, but you can access it by going to www.pathologyupdates.com.

    I've opened a website for pathologists with two different sections:
    -IHC for pathologists, based on the ihc vademecum site which we all know, and thanks to Dr. Paul Bishop, I'm starting to build a wiki with immunohistochemistry data. This site is optimized for most explorers but IE6 and below.
    -Forum for pathologists : the original idea is to start a community-based forum, so that every hospital/group could have its own section.On the other hand, I've also implemented a "library" section, with ideas on how to get articles and books for free (nothing ilegal, of course). Some of the WHO books mentioned above, Rosen's Breast Pathology...

    The link: http://forpathologists.com

    See you there!!

    www.dermpedia.org is a new "wiki" style website dedicated to sharing dermatopathology cases and promoting discussion. It's open to anybody, and is pretty cool!

    Check it out, register, and/or become a contributor. Other reputable people on the site include Drs. Phil McKee (that's right, THE McKee!), and Victor Prieto, among others.

    I've already set up a "Dermatopathology Trainees" conference, where residents and fellows can post any interesting cases.

    If you are looking for a job in neuropathology. Or if you are in a bind and trying to find a neuropathology fellowship on short notice, the best listing on the web is:

    http://neuropathologyblog.blogspot.com

    Additionally, the posts are interesting, informative, entertaining, and just cool.

    The College of American Pathologists Residents Forum and the American Society for Clinical Pathology is joining forces to create a joint mission of providing resources and information to educate medical students on careers in pathology and on residency options in pathology.

    We will have much more information to come, and we will be adding to the path wiki (which is updated by pathologists and pathology residents). We are currently working on updating unofficial "pros and cons" for various residency programs, and we are working on webinars and other informative sessions for medical students seeking more information on pathology as a career.

    I personally used this site when applying to fellowship this year, but it also has great information on diagnostic points, job openings, etc.

    hope that helps!
