Abstract

How can we teach our millennials cytopathology? In the first Bridging the Gap column, Dr. Davey commented on an Educational Testing service report indicating that millennials are now the best‐educated generation in history, but they may score lower in literacy and math skills than previous generations. They rank lower in problem‐solving, numeracy, and literacy skills than their international peers. Although we hope this is not true of our pathology and cytopathology trainees, we need to develop different ways of addressing this issue. To prepare our future pathologists and cytopathologists, we need to focus on developing their clinical reasoning and problem‐solving skills. Medicine has a long history of innovation, from the stethoscope and microscope to advanced molecular testing and imaging. As physicians, we have embraced each new technology to advance patient care. Why not use innovative technology to assist us in teaching and advancing our next generation of physicians? Millennials are extremely technically savvy and spend a great deal of time on electronic devices; choosing advanced learning technologies is likely to be appealing to our new learners. We need to bridge their interest in electronics with our educational objectives in creating good physicians. In trying to decrease the use of
