Pathologists, Residents. 

There are approximately 2500 residents in pathology in the US and Canada who need to certify on the AP Boards. In addition, any pathologist who certified after 2006 will need to recertify every 10 years. Many will elect to recertify voluntarily before this time. There are approximately 20,000 board certified pathologists in the US.
