  @yanagi, thank-you! I was hoping to hear from them but I didn't and was curious whether anyone else did. What do you think of the program? Will you receive good training to become an independent pathologist? Are there a plethora of cases to see. Maybe next year I will have a chance if I decide to apply again.
You can reply after match if you feel more comfortable.

  To those who applied, how do you get a list of hospitals to apply for pathology based on your criteria?
Thanks

  @annsosam. They have limited amount of cases (~20K) and no dermpath cases (as far as I remember). All residents are IMGs and seemed to be not overwhelmed. Everybody have a good fellowship placement mostly in NY and around. Fantastic department chair who cares about new technologies and digital imaging (e.g., they have the best slide scanner I ever saw). Residents supposed to do 1 research every year (even small one).
Did you try to do observ in Lenox Hill and Mount Sinai (NY)? (if you are interested in NY area) They have ones.

@achieve1: look up in freida -> apply to all non-military programs (~140).

  @yanagi, thank-you! that was a detailed reply and everything I wanted to know!
I willl look into applying for observership soon. At Mount Sinai they expect a minimum of one month and since I work full time this can be hard. But I might have to give up work and do that.
Thank-you again!
