Greetings, and welcome to the new home of the grass-roots cytology blog, The Populist Cytologist™! My name is Jana Sullinger, MD, and I am the Founder and Creator of CYTOPATHNET® and The Populist Cytologist™ blog. I have hosted The Populist Cytologist™ for many years on CYTOPATHNET®, but have elected to change things up a bit, and try a somewhat different format for blogging. My intent is to provide timely information regarding cytology (or for those of you who prefer, cytopathology) on a frequent basis, that will be of interest to those in the field, primarily cytotechnologists, cytopathologists, and pathologists. Students will also find some useful information, as well as nurse practitioners, OB-GYNs, physician assistants, and anyone else who has the urge.
I will be blogging about recent articles in cytology regarding cytology quality improvement (assessment), evidence-based pathology, and cytology practice guidelines. Stay tuned for interesting cytology cases, glossary of terms, and discussion about the Bethesda System for cervical cytology and thyroid cytology. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with requests for topics to be discussed, or if you have an interest in submitting a Guest Post. I hope you enjoy The Populist Cytologist™, and if you find it of interest, please be sure to tell others.
