    Job market

    I anticipate an overwhelming number of patients and biopsies to follow.  Unfortunately, reimbursements will become so low as to make the interpretation of slides a money loosing game.  In addition, autonomy for dermatopathologists will disappear.  But the malpractice risk will remain.

    In short, we will be be paid peanuts, overworking for someone else with the same malpractice exposure.
