  Have you completed Pathology training or any POST-GRAD medical training (e.g. surgery, dermatology) in another country?

Research with publications? First Author?

Have you practiced Clinical Pathology?

USMLE STEPS scores- Good? Passed first attempt? (ALL program websites give their USMLE score cut-off-add ten points to that).

USMLE Step3 done?

All or most of the above will determine getting into Path residency. Age is not a factor(supposedly)! All the best.

  I have done neurology training for three years and practiced for 6 years in an Asian country.
Research on stroke with publications over 60, first or last author.
Have not practiced clinical Pathology.
Now preparing for step 1 and plan for the test by the end of this year.
Would like to be a neuro- or vascular pathologist.
Thank you very much.

  Apply to neurology residency and pathology residency... You may like Neurology better!

Pathology...4 years + 2 years fellowship (meaning about 2 fellowships) is what most current residents are doing to be employed in a competitive market.

Neuro you can work in hospitals or private practice or have your own practice.


Apply to both.
