ENGAGING MEDICAL STUDENTS FOR A CAREER IN PATHOLOGY
USCAP is concerned about the diminishing visibility of pathology as a formal, structured discipline within the curricula of many medical schools and the consequential reduced awareness of pathology as an exceptional career option. The Academy is committed to educating medical students about the advantages of all aspects of pathology, emphasizing that now, more than ever, pathologists have an active role and responsibility on health care teams as critical determinants of patient outcomes.
- The Academy is contacting pathology student interest groups to ignite their enthusiasm for pathology as a discipline and to introduce them to essence of USCAP.
- USCAP is encouraging under-represented minority medical students to attend all Annual Meetings as guests of the Academy.
- This dedicated web page is the resource for medical student engagement and information, and will continue to be developed.
