Board certified and it feels so good!

So apologies for the delay, but yes, on the last week of July, a mere 12 weeks after taking that nightmare of a test, I received confirmation in the form of a nondescript email (or more accurately by my refreshing the website every ten minutes for 12 weeks and driving everyone crazy) that I was "successful" in both the Anatomic and Clinical Pathology portions of the exam.

So I'm a double boarded pathologist, baby!  At the end of this year, if all goes well in Cytopathology, I'll be TRIPLE boarded, which I believe doubles my mana on all offensive plays.

As far as the fellowship, well, there's no place like home, but I'm getting really spectacular training and experience.  But I do miss my own office and my surrogate Charleston family.

Now, the greatest challenge: Finding that first real pathology job.  Clock is ticking!

But yes, the short version:  I PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
