May 2021 Issue of The Pathologist

In May’s issue of The Pathologist, we hear the story behind the creation of the Einstein Montefiore Summer High School Research Program – introducing students from all backgrounds to the wonderful world of science and medicine. Also in this issue: how the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine is improving patient care one diagnostic error at a time, overcoming Indian medicine’s “Great Divides” with a little help from pathology, and lessons learned in rediscovering physician wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic. We also sit down with Mike Osborn, President of the UK’s Royal College of Pathologists.
