3. Saving PubMed Articles of Interest

How can you save PubMed articles of interest? Dr. Pernick asked PubMed and got this reply:

After clicking the checkboxes to select citations from the search results page, click the Display Options button and choose Abstract. This will display the selected items only in the Abstract format. Alternately, use the Send to button and choose Clipboard. This will send the selected items to your PubMed Clipboard (this is not the same as your typical operating system clipboard), where they can be viewed until after 8 hours of inactivity.

4. Job Opportunities in Pathology

This video by Scott Kilpatrick, M.D. of Cleveland Clinic, Jobs and Opportunities in Pathology, explores job opportunities in pathology and provides recommendations on how to succeed. It was recommended by our Editorial Board Member Andrey Bychkov, M.D., Ph.D.
