The chaos in the law related to “regulations of medical specialty” has negative effect on the training of pathology residency programs in our country. There are enormous effort to close the gap by the medical specialists via their societies or federations. Training in pathology commission of Federation of Turkish Pathology Societies has finished their work related to “The schedule of training of pathology residency” and “logbook”. The panel deals with training in pathology residency are part of these efforts. Requirements of rotations to the other institutions were treated too. It is considered more appropriate that the federation regulates rotations for sub specializations. Systematic approach is requiring for education. Each pathology department should have an education team. It is recommended that a senior pathologist become the head of the team. This organization could solve the most of the problems. Satisfaction of residents and trainers will be increased by the schedule of training of pathology residency; logbook, written feedbacks and competency based resident training and assessment that organized by these education teams/units.
