March 2021 Issue of The Pathologist

In March’s issue of The Pathologist, we go behind the scenes of your favorite pathology podcasts – talking to a panel of hosts about what inspired them to start podcasting, its benefits as an educational tool, and advice for those wanting to start their own podcasts. Also in this issue: fundamental questions about remedial genome editing, how a virtual pathology lecture series arose from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the effects of virtual learning on retention and satisfaction. We also sit down with Larry Wang, Professor of Clinical Pathology at the University of Southern California and Director of Surgical Pathology and Associate Director of the Center for Global Health at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, USA.
