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.
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:
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.
Residents and Fellows are also invited to submit their research for a platform presentation during the FSP educational sessions. The FSP Poster Committee chooses three submissions and each presenter will be given 10 minutes to present their research from the podium to the attendees of the FSP conference.
Residents and fellows can submit their poster to be considered for an oral platform presentation to take place during the FSP's Annual Pathology Conference. Platform presentations are an opportunity to present your research and highlight key elements that are unique, novel or contribute new knowledge to pathology. The platform presentations will be ten minutes in length including time for questions from the audience. Presenting your research to an audience of 250+ pathologists in attendance will be an invaluable speaking opportunity and an excellent addition to your CV.
