  •   This includes residents or fellows, but does not include medical students.

Why is verification required?
  •   We need to verify that you are actually a pathologist before posting your data since this Directory is only for pathologists and we have had improper
    submissions in the past.
  •   Ensuring that the data on the site is accurate makes the Directory a more valuable resource.

What verification is acceptable?

  •   This question just asks if you might be interested; if we have an interested business, we will provide you specific details and you
    can decline to participate at that time.

  •   With a headshot, pathologists find it easier to relate to you, in person or online. However, we can make an exception.
  •   Send us the largest size you have, up to 10MB.
