Pathpedia.com joins the growing pathology cybernetwork

Zahid Kaleem, MD
Today's guest post is from Dr. Zahid Kaleem, hematopathologist at Missouri Baptist Medical Center. In collaboration with other pathologists, Dr. Kaleem has created a website called Pathpedia.com, which will enhance exchange of ideas and interesting cases among neuropathologists as well as those who deal with the "lower organs". It's exciting to see yet another colleague joining the ranks of pathologist social networkers. Here's Dr. Kaleem's post:


Pathpedia.com is a comprehensive web-based resource on human anatomical, clinical, and experimental pathology. The site serves a target audience including pathologists, pathologists-in-training, laboratory professionals, clinicians, medical scientists, and medical students. For neuropathologists, the sites offers listing of annual meetings and educational courses from around the world, postings of unusual pathology cases, a browsable table of content of various neuropathology/neurology journals, the ability to create your own WikiBook, and the opportunity to post jobs and resumes. Soon to be released is a listing of CME / SAM, both paid and free, in all specialties including neuropathology.

Hey, doc (or as Richard Shindell might say "Hey, Duck") did you see the recent Dec. 6 New York Times special section on how the brain solves puzzles?

Richard Shindell song I reference is actually called "Confession" on his "Somewhere near Paterson" cd, about a guy wanting refills from his gp. Pass that along to the musicphilia subgroup.

The "hey, duck" has something to do with his kid mis-hearing the lyrics and quacking up.

Weird coincidence: Richard Shindell's father, an investment banker, endowed a neuroscience chair at Rutgers University.
