What led you to pathology and laboratory medicine? For many, it was a chance encounter with someone in the profession, or a hands-on training session during medical school, or an undergraduate summer spent in a laboratory. But in a world where in-person learning is less and less common, how can people find their way to pathology? Read on to find out how “Team Pathology” laid a #Path2Path for new recruits…

Yours, Michael Schubert, Editor
