I'm trying to plan my fourth year and in need of a bit of advice.I know doing electives in both would be ideal, and that's my plan, but I want to have some idea what is likely to suit me so I can schedule that elective first and get good letters early on. To anyone who debated between radiology and pathology (and obviously chose pathology) what lead you to chose pathology? Now that you've begun residency, is it what you expected? Also, I know quality of life during residency sucks by definition, but do you feel like you are any better off than a radiology resident in that respect? For instance, I know radiology call is pretty stressful. What is "beeper call" like for path residents? How competitive is dermpath? How hard is it to get a dermpath fellowship coming from a community path program? Thanks all! Sorry for the litany of questions here.
