@JaneAir - Interesting. I have a friend who currently works in the medical field and she's interested in becoming a pathologist. She's not big on dealing with patients, so I think this would be a really good fit for her. Now she just has to go to medical school!
Reading through the article, it makes a lot of sense that pathologists have to be able to deal with stress. From my vast understanding of pathology (I watch crime shows on television sometimes) it seems like there's a time crunch for pathologists that are working on criminal cases. I know I wouldn't want to be responsible for letting bad guys go free because it took me too long to examine samples or I missed something. That does sound stressful!
