I am trying to come up with a list of pathology residencies for next year and although the quality of training in programs is an important factor for me, I also have two young children (4 mo and 2 years) and therefore flexibility and hours are also very important. It seems there is a lot of variability in this regard (time spent grossing, weekends, night call, number of PAs etc) so I was wondering if anyone had any input on programs I should consider and also ones to avoid? I am particularly looking at programs in NYC, Boston, and CA.
It seems like it is a one year fellowship and can be entered from a variety of specialties. Seems like the hours would be manageable and less patients to see than general medicine. Would love to hear any experiences.
