| January 31, 2011

Social networking and Pathology 2.0 are giving young pathologists unique opportunities to advance their careers and their clinical expertise. If you're a pathology resident or fellow, smart use of these tools can help you identify the perfect job, with ample salary and benefits to match.

If you're preparing to enter the professional arena, you'll want to use Pathology 2.0 and social networking to build valuable collaborations within the pathology profession. In the clinical area, it's a great way to open doors and interact with nationally prominent sub-specialist pathologists and professional leaders. 

Keith J. Kaplan, MD, FCAP is an up-and-coming young pathologist who is recognized as an early master of social networking-and is credited with coining the term "Pathology 2.0." Now he's ready to share what he's learned with you.

If you're a pathology resident or fellow, this is your chance to understand the essentials of Pathology 2.0 and social networking. Find out how the effective use of these resources can boost your career-both clinically and financially when you register to attend "Finding Your Perfect Pathology Job: How to Use Pathology 2.0 and Social Networking to Advance Your Career" on Thursday, February 10, 2011.

"Web 2.0" refers to an Internet that is both personalized and interactive. It incorporates technologies that allow websites to recognize the individual and deliver information and content tailored specifically to each user's interests and needs. It's about instant communication and collaboration across large numbers of like-minded individuals, enabled by the Internet.

Take all those Web 2.0 capabilities, add digital pathology images and you have the basis of Pathology 2.0, which represents a disruptive change agent in today's practice of anatomic pathology. 

Pathology 2.0 is the convergence of digital imaging, digital pathology systems, and integrated healthcare informatics. This combination of digital pathology images with social networking collaborations gives you the ability to discuss or diagnose a case across an ever-expanding network.

During this webinar, you'll learn how Pathology 2.0 is already beginning to change the daily practice of surgical pathology. Find out how digitized whole slide images, combined with different web-based technologies, can change case referral patterns. It all starts with a physician treating a patient and extends to the pathologist who may want a sub-specialist to review the images.

It is easy to see why Pathology 2.0 is likely to transform the current anatomic pathology practice into a different, more vibrant, and more collaborative profession. It will be today's pathology residents-already familiar with computers, email, and video games-who will be more likely to use the Internet to support their surgical pathology practices. 

As a pathology resident or fellow today, you have incredible new tools to advance your clinical skills and increase your professional compensation. Pathology 2.0 and social networking are valuable resources that can help you identify and secure the perfect job this spring. Find out how when you register to attend this very special webinar.
