Hi! My name is Andrea and I am doing research on pathology for my Health class. I would appreciate it if you answered these questions the best you could. Thank you! 1)How many years of college did you need to go through? What other programs, courses, and clubs did you join or do? 2)What jobs did you work before you became a pathologist?

What is the process of becoming a physician assistant and would you recommend this professional path?

Over this past summer I did an internship at Boston Children Hospital, working with the Pathology department. During that time, I was able to spend with Pathology, i viewed many career paths within Pathology. However, one that stood out to me was a Physician Assistant. Unfortunately, I was not able to spend as much time shadowing them as i'd like and also wasn't quite aware of who filled those positions at the time. That being said, if anyone has any information regarding their average salary, life style and projection of success, as well as any other information that would be amazing! I plan to continue to do internships with Boston Children regarding Pathology however I am in need of advice, tips or any comments about this department and physician assistant profession. This would benefit me extremely as it will help build my confidence for continuing this pathway as well as building connecting getting into this program! I am a senior in high school and while I know I have time to figure out my future professional interest it would be so helpful with any info. I am interested in University of Connecticut's Biopathology program and was also wondering if anyone has experience at UCONN as a whole and/or knowledge of their science programs. THANK YOU :)

Forensics Pathologist?What do you need to study to lead to this occupation?

Not much is told about pathologists in general...and pathologist seems suited for me since I'm interested in the medical field ,but I wouldn't want to deal with people's pains and their deaths....More like just interpreting of what caused their death...Except in this case I'm not sure what classes you need to take or what do you need to major in college to pursue this. Is it similar to doctors? Like Pre-med? #medicine #pre-med #forensics #pathologist #medicine-field #pathology
