Committee for Improvement in the Pathology Job Market
Homepage of the Committee for Improvement in the Pathology Job Market

Hello, we are a group of Pathologists concerned about the serious oversupply of Pathologists in the US. The current oversupply of Pathologists has come about as a result of many factors (see links below) and has had many serious consequences including the 30% unemployment and underemployment among graduates of Pathology training programs in the 1998 survey from the ASCP. We are therefore committed to the following goals:

1. To try to reduce the oversupply of Pathologists in the US by advocating reductions in the number of Pathology residency positions.

2. To advise as many prospective Pathologists as possible of the current and future status of the job market so that they may make informed career decisions.

Here are links to additional information on the Pathology job market:

Why train too many Pathologists?

Current update and future projections (as of 01/15/2001)

1996 ASCP survey showing 49% of graduating Pathology trainees with no job offer

1998 ASCP survey showing 30% of graduating Pathology trainees with no job offer

Current FREIDA information showing 12.5% of Pathology trainees "not employed upon program completion" and 42.9% of graduates "experienced difficulty securing a preferred position"


We're looking for volunteers to support our cause. Ideally, we'd like to have people at each medical school who can provide information to all medical students on how hard it is for Pathologists to find jobs. We also would like to have people approach the administration at hospitals with Pathology Residency Programs to recommend reductions or closures of programs.
