Big changes in the American healthcare system mean equally big changes to the job market in pathology and laboratory medicine! That’s both good news and bad news for pathology residents and pathology fellows preparing to enter the job market.
It’s good news because many laboratories, pathology group practices, and hospitals need to beef up their pathology skill mix due to advances in molecular diagnostics and greater use of next-generation gene sequencing for clinical testing. With the right skill mix, it is possible for residents and fellows to “write their own ticket” with top employers.
It’s bad news because a large number of smaller lab companies and pathology groups are struggling to keep up with the need to invest in complex lab testing technology. At the same time, health insurers are restricting their lab networks and paying less for many lab tests. For these pathology lab organizations, there are tough times ahead and they cannot afford to pay new pathologist hires as generously as in recent years.
Boost Your Pathology Job Search Prospects
To put you front and center in today’s evolving pathology job market, our upcoming PREP webinar, “Big Changes in Today’s Pathology Job Market Create New Opportunities for Residents & Fellows,” on April 16, 2013 is the perfect ticket! This is part one of our two-part pathology job market webinar series.
This webinar is designed with the busy resident and fellow in mind. It is a concentrated 50-minute session that gives you personal access to one of the leading pathologist recruiters in the United States. And it is hosted by pathology leaders from the nation’s largest urban healthcare system!
Whether you are a pathology fellow ready to find your first job or a pathology resident still a few years away from completing your residency, this good news/bad news aspect to the pathology job market directly affects your career prospects. This is true because you want to find a job with the lab company and pathology group that is flourishing and growing.
Find Best Pathology Job Opportunities and Avoid Bad Prospects
That makes it essential that you understand the changing dynamics of the labor market in pathology. You also want to understand how to recognize and avoid those labs and pathology groups which are hiring pathologists-but are also struggling financially.
Think about it! Doesn’t it make sense to launch your career with a job at one of the top pathology laboratory companies? Invest just 50 minutes in our exclusive webinar and you’ll gain the knowledge you need to optimize your pathology job search.
As a resident or fellow watching the pathology job market, you need a source of up-to-the-minute business intelligence. This knowledge is the key that unlocks the door to those pathology jobs that provide you the best combination of salary and benefits.
Learn from A Leading Pathologist Recruiter
First, you’ll hear from Rich Cornell, President of Santé Consulting. For more than two decades, Cornell has placed pathologists at the nation’s biggest and best laboratory companies, pathology group practices, and IVD firms. You’ll get invaluable information about:
- current trends in pathologist recruiting and hiring;
- what’s soon to change in hiring practices for younger pathologists; and,
- essential skills in highest demand.
Next, your chairs and moderators for this important webinar are the team of James M. Crawford, MD, PhD, Chair, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, and Senior Vice President for Laboratory Services, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System; and Cynthia Bevis, Assistant Vice President, Laboratories at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System (NSLIJHS). They will guide the discussion and provide real-world insights in the job-hunting successes of pathology residents and fellows at NSLIJHS.
You’ll gain vital knowledge, including how to recognize the best pathology positions. It is useful to understand the different needs of employers, ranging from independent pathology laboratories and private practice pathology groups to academic centers and IVD firms. Yes, these companies are eager to hire young pathologists. However, not all employment opportunities are equal and Cornell will equip you with the skills to accurately identify the advantages and disadvantages of working within each of these business models.
Finding Your Ideal Pathology Job
Can a professional recruiter help you with your pathology job search? In most cases, the answer is yes and Cornell will outline the ins and outs of working with a professional physician recruiter. You’ll want to know how to spot the skilled recruiters and the best ways to work with them to help you find your ideal pathology job.
Best of all, you’ll find this 50-minute webinar—and its part two companion that will address how to negotiate compensation and benefits during job interviews—a concise, productive way to access vital information about the real world and current state of the pathology job marketplace. It’s your opportunity to get outside the four walls of the academic environment and take the temperature of today’s pathology job marketplace.
