Here’s what’s new on PathologyOutlines.com this week:

1. Advertising Special

We are currently offering a special on the banner ad spaces at the top and the side of the Jobs Page on our website. These highly visible banner ad spaces normally cost $750 per month. However, if booked before the end of August, we are offering them at $500 per month.

2. Topic Dates

Topics have 2 dates. The “Topic completed” date refers to major updates to the contents of the page or a review of the entire topic by an expert. The “Minor changes” date refers to anything else, often a fixed typo, new image, etc. Our goal is to have every topic reviewed every 2-3 years, so the “topic completed” date will be within 2-3 years of today’s date.
