Abstract : A common complaint among pathology department faculty is the variable medical knowledge and histological experience of incoming residents. While multifactorial, deficiencies are likely attributable to a lack of pathology emphasis during clinical years of medical school and the move towards more organ system-based modalities of learning. Methods of accelerating the transition from medical student to pathology resident are crucial but thus far non-standardized. Here, we describe the results of a 4-week surgical pathology bootcamp experience in the largest military pathology residency program in the US.
