Welcome back! Today, I bring you an intriguing question from a future medical student. Samantha Scetta writes, “I recently received my first acceptance to an osteopathic medical college and I understand that DOs are not as plentiful as MDs in pathology. I would love to hear more from DOs regarding their journey into pathology, as far as residencies and fellowships.”

Are you a DO in pathology? Do you have any advice or comments? Let us know and we’ll make sure to share your thoughts!

Yours, Michael Schubert, Editor
