Last week, we asked DOs in pathology to share their experiences. Your replies were enlightening and we’ll be sharing them shortly – but, before we do so, I wanted to issue one final call for comments to make sure everyone has a chance to contribute. Are you a DO in pathology (or otherwise involved in getting DOs into pathology)? If so, we’d love to hear from you – and so would interested DO students considering a career in the field!

Yours, Michael Schubert, Editor
