Casting a Training Lifeline
A series of pathology lectures that can be viewed from anywhere, at any time, for free, could boost equality by providing medical education for all

At a Glance
- A significant resource and training gap exists between developed and developing countries
- The training gap also affects medical education – and pathology in particular – meaning that not every trainee in the field can access the same learning tools
- To tackle the disparity, we’ve developed pathCast – a free multicast lecture series that can be streamed live or viewed on demand at any time, from anywhere
- We hope this will help bridge the knowledge gap – and we invite all interested pathologists to consider participating
Where did you receive your pathology education? Did you have access to state-of-the-art computers, simulated training, interactive quizzes, or the latest in multi-headed microscopes? Or did you work from textbooks, diagrams, or the basic information available on the Internet? Not every pathologists’ medical training looks the same, and it’s certainly true that not every student of pathology can access the same resources and assistance. It’s those differences that we feel should be addressed – and that’s what pathCast, a free pathology lecture series streamed live and available on demand, hopes to accomplish.
