29th Annual Seminar in Pathology
As pathologists, we get to see many cases on a daily bases. However, we also have lots of administrative duties and teaching responsibilities that take a significant chunk of our day. One of the resolutions I set to myself as a budding practicing pathologist is to work smarter.
However, to work smarter, I needed to find ways to be more efficient.
There are some things I tweaked around with and eventually found helpful. For example, I found I did better when I had less time: If I gave myself two hours to sign out my cases, it was enough to get some real work done before I started to lose concentration or goof around. Then, I could allot another one hour to do administrative work, go to a meeting or give a lecture to our residents.
Another path to become more efficient at your work is obviously to know your material well. Once we get a good grasp of what we’re looking for when reviewing slides, we can become more confident in correctly signing out the majority of the cases in front of us.
That’s why I enjoy learning about the latest updates happening in the world of pathology. My favorite platform to do this is either in person (through conferences) or online (through pre-taped lectures).
This year, like previous years, we have an incredible line-up of pathologists from all over the country. In this email, I want to introduce all of our speakers for the Annual Seminar in Pathology 2022 (April 21-24) in Pittsburgh, PA.
Hope to see you at the conference!
