I'm an MS4 that's about to apply to path programs. I know that it's quite common in medicine and surgery to get into both a residency and guaranteed fellowhip at the same time (ie. fast-tracking). Can this be done in pathology as well? For instance, if I'm interested in hemepath or dermpath etc, can I ask the program to guarantee me a spot in their fellowship if I agree to stay? I don't think that this is common but are programs flexible enough to do this if they really want you? Thanks for any insight.
