I dont know if a thread has been created similar to this but Id like to hear where fellows from your institution (as far as you can remember) have ended up (jobs only) and pay (if you like to add). This will give us an idea of the job market.

My program had two fellows going to a rural academic-affiliated community hospital.

One is in the Midwest (pretty good starting at 200K, from what I heard. Partnership I heard was a lot higher).

One is doing part time in academics (by choice).

One is in the boondocks (150K, I think he had some visa issues).

Anyone else wanna share?

The job market in my area sucks because of the number of training programs.

Are these the fellowships they completed or their new job description?

They are the jobs they have. For the people doing surg path in addition to a specialty (which they did do a fellowship in), only 2 and 6 actually did a year long surg path fellowship. So the rest just did AP/CP and then the fellowship. The BB/TM one is CP only. Sorry for the confusion.

In my residency class, all the successfully graduating pathologists aside from myself went into academics.

In my fellowship class (very small), all the graduates went into private practice (part time gigs only though).
