The authors review the results of an anonymous questionnaire distributed to a sample of pathology residents in the United States. With a response rate of 19.4% (n = 490), the majority of residents expressed overall positive attitudes and opinions about pathologists' assistants and felt that pathologists' assistants enhanced resident training by optimizing resident workload. Some (10%-20%) of residents expressed negative attitudes or opinions about pathologists' assistants, or no knowledge at all of this specialized allied health professional. The authors conclude that increased resident education and open discussion concerning pathologists' assistants may be beneficial for optimizing resident attitudes about and training experiences with pathologists' assistants.
