STREAMING WEBINAR ACCESS
Even as you work through your pathology residency training or your pathology fellowship program, the healthcare marketplace is undergoing fast and fundamental change. That means a different job market as you finish your training and begin looking for your perfect pathology job!
This raises an important question for you: When you enter the job market in the next 12, 24, or 36 months, will you be ready to serve the pathology needs of a fast-evolving healthcare system that is emphasizing new clinical care delivery models?
This trend is most visible in the formation of large numbers of accountable care organizations (ACOs) and patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs). Physicians practicing preventive medicine in ACOs and medical homes use lab tests in different ways. They also want more consultations with clinical pathologists and surgical pathologists.
To help you understand these far-reaching changes and how it will change the way laboratory testing services are used by physicians, a special streaming webinar titled “How to Align Your Residency Training with Pathology’s Changing Role in a Transforming Healthcare System.”
Your expert speaker will be pathologist James M. Crawford, M.D., Ph.D., Chair of Pathology at the nation’s largest urban healthcare system, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health (NS-LIJ). Dr. Crawford is on the front lines of the shift to integrated clinical care. Among other things, he is the chair of the NS-LIJ task force that is developing a customized medical home organization for the patients served by NS-LIJ.
During this information-filled 50-minute webinar, you’ll learn how ACOs and medical homes are already triggering shifts in how physicians utilize laboratory tests. Dr. Crawford will show you how and why these integrated care models create new—but different—opportunities for pathologists to support physicians who order clinical lab tests and surgical pathology services.
These are essential insights. They help you connect your residency and fellowship learning activities to the evolving needs that physicians—and their parent healthcare organizations—will have from clinical labs and pathology groups.

Key learnings you’ll gain from this webinar include:
- How ACOs and medical homes deliver integrated care to patients
- What “coordinated care” means
- How coordinated care causes physicians to utilize lab tests and pathologist consultations in different way
- What makes the laboratory and the pathologist a necessary partner in coordinated care
- Why lab test data and better informatics integration enable pathologists to be essential contributors in patient-centered healthcare
- Critical knowledge pathology residents and fellows should acquire to optimize their job search success
- What happens to pathologists’ incomes when fee-for-service payment is replaced with value-based payment and bundled reimbursement
One invaluable aspect of this webinar for pathology residents, fellows, and their pathology residency program directors, is Dr. Crawford’s goal for all participants. “I want you to expand your horizons, in a way that will help make you stand out when you interview for pathology jobs,” he commented. “The basic idea behind this webinar is that; (a) if residents are more aware of the bigger picture, it will show during their interviews; and (b) they also will be more able to assess whether a potential employer is ‘with it’ and is likely to succeed in the new healthcare environment.”
Dr. Crawford will help you understand how to tailor your residency and fellowship choices to position yourself as a superior candidate for employment. This ensures you master the essential skills that coordinated care pathologists like yourself moving into the future.
The interactive Q&A format allows you to ask your most important questions and participate in discussions with other pathology residents.
