The most difficult step for a medical student is making the transition from student to qualified doctor. Exam performance is no  longer the primary objective; the junior doctors must integrate all their knowledge together to interpret the clinical signs, symptoms, and results from investigations. Missed findings can have a significant impact on patients’ lives. Thus, we thoroughly concur with the findings of the article by Atta and AlQahtani.1 Integrating two fields, radiology and pathology, while still in medical school not only enhances the students’ interest into the field but also improves their performance.
