ANATOMICAL PATHOLOGY

This elective is structured to acquaint students with disease processes by the study of surgical pathology and autopsy material and to correlate the clinical and pathological abnormalities, and to better understand the roles of Pathologists within clinical settings. Participation in teaching conferences on Monday mornings is encouraged. The number of students which can be accommodated is variable depending upon the space and staff availability.
