I'd feel very very sorry for our CMGs, who had/have strong research
background, missed to apply NIH AP-only path program!!!!!!!
NIH AP-only Path program should be a very good target for you guys with
strong research, and actually you will be greatly appreciated by those
academic pathologists. One of my current PGY-1 girl who was attracted by
them, but she turned down them bcz OSU pre-matched her already, who had US
PhD and post-doc with good step 1/2/CS.
Actuaqlly, you can go to UMaryland, Navy Hospital, and even Hopkings for
rotation during residency, no mention you have very good credential and
strong LoR for your future chosing higher level program for fellowship!!!
More important: AP only is just 3-yr in AP, and you can take then 2
fellowships for another 2 yrs. this way, you have very strong background in
surgical path but spend same time in training comparing to AP/CP combined
with one fellowship guys!!!
In my opinion, this is the best way to pursue in you want to be a good
believe me, I always strongly encourage CMGs go this track.
