US pHD， 绿卡，
跟我老板说了我要申请病理，他认为我只有申请CP only，走academic路线，才不枉我的research training and background. 他说如果我决心申请CP only, 他会尽最大努力帮我进我们学校的program (which is a top 20 medical school)，这样我在resident期间也可以在他的lab干活。（当然他不是系主任，副主任，他的努力有多大作用，我也不清楚。）他说如果我想申请AP/CP，我们program估计不会要我。
我非常不flexible，只能在我的城市及附近申请，不可能有老人来帮忙带孩子。又非常希望能进我们学校的program. 但是听说CP only 很不容易找工作，市场很窄。我想对于我这种不flexible的人市场也很重要。但又怕告诉老板不想申请CP only, 老板不很高兴不愿意 surport我。
不知道怎么办好，请大家提意见。另外，hemo path市场怎么样？hemo path在这是CP.

if this is the most guranteed opportunity for you to get in, take it as
mentor's suggestion! and if you don't hate to do CP or be an academic
Although CP only job market is nerrow, fortunately, CP only pathologist
extremely rare, thus, it's won't be very hard to find a good position after
graduation. actually, if CP only and + Blood bank or microbiology or
molecular pathology fellowship, you be be very hot !!! many big program
more and more middle size programs
need such specialists to ran their molecular lab, Blood bank, or
esp Blood bank as well as molecular lab, many old directors will retire
in a few year, and now board requests later on director of Blood bank MUST
be fellowship trained with board certificate, so, 4-5yr later, many director
position are opening there.......
what a good view in near future........hohoho, but I'm serious.......
Currently, the important for you is: get in first!!!!
think about it in another view:
you can keep your relationship and research w/ your current boss, thus,
will have tons of abstracts and papers during residency, then you can easily
find super or top fellowship, then you will NOT worry job--the jobs will
make you headache: to pick up which one? hohoho, sometimes too many good
positions, it's headache too.........
I's serious, get in first! unless you HATE to do research or hate to be
actually two of my classmates or friends are fro WU and UPenn CP only, both
now are directors and million $$$ NIH fundings with big lab--benefited from
their residency training and research achievements, and big boss in
they both working at UC and UPenn suchi top 10 big tier pathology programs.
whether to struggle fighting for a unknown/no-asured position by yourself,
or get in w/ your boss's support and smooth road in future, you pick!
in addition: hem-path esp if with molecular is very hot now!!!!
if u r in a top 20 path pg, you SHOULD'NT worry for job any way!!!
ask your boss to make a position for you, he should have big influence to
in my program, a CMG got pre-match just bcz her boss is CP pathologist
attending, and coag lab director.
If I were u, I have no any hesitation to do as your boss said.
