The FSP Mentorship Program is designed to connect FSP resident and fellow members with experienced pathologists that are members of the FSP to provide personal, professional and leadership development. Mentees are matched with Mentors based on the information gathered through the application process. Mentees can also select up to three mentor candidates from the list of FSP Mentors. The program is open to all residents and fellows that are members of the FSP. To learn more and to apply for the Mentorship Program, visit the link directly below.

Attend an FSP Conference

The FSP holds two educational conferences each year where Residents and Fellows can attend for a significantly discounted price. The conferences offer Residents and Fellows professional development opportunities specific to their interests including the following:

  • Connection: Network with other residents, fellows and practicing pathologists during networking events and build lasting relationships that extend beyond the conference. A resident and fellow roundtable event held during the February conference will provide a unique opportunity to interact with pathology leaders from academic, private practice and laboratory settings to get guidance and advice transitioning into practice.  Learn new tools and strategies from vendors in the FSP exhibit hall where over 40 vendors are in one location.
  • Education: Learn in an interactive educational environment with question and answer sessions with faculty, interactive microscopy sessions, and read slides breakouts. Educational topics will also include topics of interest to residents and fellows that will help them successfully transition into practice from residency and fellowship.
  • Career Advancement: Meet with future employers during Exhibit Hall networking functions. Learn about job opportunities and visit the FSP Job Board. Attend the Fellowship Fair and meet with the various fellowship programs from the State.


Submit a Poster and Present Your Research

The FSP offers Residents and Fellows the opportunity to present their research abstract or case report during the February Conference and participate in the FSP Digital Poster Competition. The purpose of the Digital Poster Competition is to provide a venue to share innovative, to stimulate research, showcase unique research projects, and to encourage networking among pathologists. All abstracts or case reports will be judged by the FSP Poster Committee and the top three submissions are awarded cash prizes.

Rare and Interesting Case Competition 

Residents and fellows can submit an abstract to be considered for the rare and interesting case competition that takes place during the FSP's Annual Pathology Conference. This is the perfect opportunity to present and highlight a rare and interesting case onstage to the FSP attendees. Presenting to an audience of 250+ pathologists in attendance will be an invaluable speaking opportunity and an excellent addition to your CV.
