Welcome to our annual celebration of the great and inspirational minds that underpin the medical laboratory. For 2021, we present some of the most inspirational pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals in six different categories...
In February’s issue of The Pathologist, two pathologists discuss how practices differ in the East and the West. What does the average workday look like in India and in North America? How do training programs differ? And, most importantly, what can the two regions learn from each other? Also in this issue: the key questions to ask yourself about sigma metrics in the lab, the wonderful world of #PathTwitter and how it can help prospective pathology residents, and beating burnout in medical school (and beyond). We sit down with Dame Sue Black, President of the Royal Anthropological Institute and Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Engagement at Lancaster University, UK.
