Yeah, I have been a lurker for awhile now. Thought I might jump in and post here, since I have a question I have been thinking about. I have heard that the job situation in path is not what it used to be, is this accurate? If it helps, I want to do dermpath and any advice on how to get a dermpath fellowship would be appreciated.

Job situation is awful and you can only get a dermpath fellowship if you are a dermatologist :laugh:

I've settled in with a good highball tonight. Amazing how such an inconsequential day can provide such relief and a great excuse to drink. Oh, and I only have 2 more days left on my surg sub-i. Mmm... that's a good highball.

I hear drinking can help steady the nerves in the operating theater. Always take a drink before operating on someone. :thumbup:

After the wide perineal excision and bilateral orchiectomy I saw today for Fournier gangrene, I think that's sound advice.

Yaah, you're being funny, did you just have intercourse or something? I hope I can say 'intercourse' on here.
No, I spent 2 hours poking through rectal fat looking for lymph nodes and the largest one I found was 2 mm. The second largest one I found was 1 mm. I have to find 10. :mad:

Sigh, no. I did not have intercourse. The cute VA girl gave me low-fat chocolate today though.

Where is deschutes? Is she avoiding posting her ROL?
no clue. i don't think she was intending to post her ROL anyway...dunno what her thoughts about it are now.

p.s. it is a distinct possibility that she is in invisible mode or is one of the guests.

She's been avoiding the topic for some time. I'm curious to see it too.

In which case she needs to be put across yaah's knee and spanked. That's a moderator's job, right? Spanking unruly posters?

I don't spank people. :)

Maybe she actually has a life!

I have another question: Does anyone know what the average board scores are for pathology? I want to do pathology because I want to help people and I like the lifestyle.
shut up yaah...those antics were so one hour ago.

2) She does.

3) 1271 or so.
