Episode 172: Dr Jason Wasserman – Empowering Patients With MyPathologyReport

The MyPathologyReport website was created by Dr. Jason Wasserman, a pathologist, with the goal of providing patients with a better understanding of their pathology reports. Dr. Wasserman recognized the need for patients to have access to clear and concise information about their diagnosis.

Initially, the website started with a glossary of common pathology terms, such as atypia, dysplasia, and margins. It then expanded to include diagnostic articles that break down the different elements of a pathology report and provide more information about specific diagnoses. These articles were written with a focus on simplifying complex pathology terminology, making them accessible to patients.

The feedback from patients has been overwhelmingly positive, with many expressing gratitude for the website’s resources and assistance in understanding their reports. The website has also gained recognition from patient advocacy groups and medical organizations, who appreciate the effort to make pathology more accessible to patients.

Episode 171: Olivia Josephsen – A Guide To Shadowing In Pathology

In this episode, Olivia Josephsen and I take you step by step through how to get shadowing opportunities. While this is about pathologists assistants, these tips can be used in any laboratory profession.  

We explain how to find someone to shadow, and how to contact them.  While shadowing, it is important to ask questions, and we tell you why.  

After shadowing you should follow up with the person you shadowed, especially if you intend to ask them for a letter of recommendation.

Shadowing isn’t all about the student either.  Listen to find out how the person being shadowed can gain from it too.  

We talk about virtual shadowing, and how it is a good option to increase availability of shadowing opportunities.

If you’re an experienced PA who is open to being shadowed, add #PathAShadow to your social media so students can find you.
