    The American Board of Pathology has created a physician scientist pathway for our discipline. Medical students interested in an academic career now have the opportunity to train in a pathology track that will foster their careers. Many MD\PhD students are aware that physician scientist tracks are available in other disciplines such as internal medicine, pediatrics, dermatology etc. Pathology now offers the same opportunity to train as a physician scientist.

    We need to keep lobbying for the creation of physician-scientist pathways to help our graduates pursuing other specialties such as Neurology, Psychiatry, and several of the surgical specialties.

    I'm glad this is being legitimized, but these pathways always existed in the top departments.
