Not all neuropathologists have their primary training in general pathology
J. Clay Goodman, M.D., Assistant Dean for Medical Education at Baylor, did a residency in neurology, not pathology, before getting fellowship training in neuropathology. Another prominenet neuropathologist, John E. Donahue, had a similar trajectory, having done a neurology residency at Tufts before doing a fellowship in neuropathology at Brown University in Rhode Island, where he is now an attending. Most of us, however, had general pathology training before becoming neuropathologists.
