Some Things to Do
  • Obtain an appointment at your local Medical Schools - teach, attend conferences, bring students or residents to your hospital for rotations and participate in research studies
  • Become active in professional societies, including the local Pathology Society, County Medical Association, AMA, ASCP and CAP - not only as a member, but as a contributing member of committees and eventually as one of the leaders
  • Become active in your community - have a civic and political agenda - serve on the school board, join service organizations
  • Participate as a contributor and also as a leader in community and hospital fund raising campaigns
