Opportunities in pathology
Pathology is the study and understanding of how illness and diseases work and their impact on people.
There are several different specialties and further sub-specialties within pathology. Each offers a fascinating and varied role and opportunities for research.
Doctors in pathology combine laboratory and clinical work and conduct critical procedures. For example, histopathologists perform autopsies and determine cause of death while virologists are fundamental to combating new and emerging viruses such as COVID-19.
