Papanicolaou Address: Why the next generation should take this journey and overcome constraint

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Cytopathology is experiencing many forces that are changing and constraining current practice, including the need for cost efficiencies, new technologies, expectations for higher quality and faster turnaround time, and a diminishing workforce. Two “hot topics” that will have considerable influence on the changes in the future practice of cytopathology are artificial intelligence and optimization of cervical screening intervals and methods. The future growth and success of the cytopathology subspecialty will require using constraint as a catalyst to achieve transformative solutions, as well as an optimistic “we can if…” entrepreneurial attitude. Success will also require living the field's traditions and values: mentorship, sponsorship, innovation and creativity, a willingness to assume new roles, and the ability to network and support career journeys through active participation in a professional society.
