Molecular testing of lung cancer: Trends and implications in pathology residency with practice.

This study examines how pathology graduate medical education prepares its graduates for practice using data from a 4-year series of surveys of newly practicing pathologists and a survey of physicians who employ newly practicing pathologists. By comparing results across multiple practice environments, sizes, and periods of practice, we build evidence supporting the value of residency training for a variety of practice areas using the technique outlined in our prior work. Newly practicing pathologists and their employers report that residency generally prepared them well for practice, but certain areas-billing and coding, laboratory management, molecular pathology, and pathology informatics-repeatedly emerged as being crucial in practice but underprepared for in residency.
