The Anatomic Pathology Service provides diagnostic care for patients who have a wide range of medical disorders. It uses various methods (e.g., gross observations, light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, and electron microscopy) to examine specimens removed from living and deceased patients, then integrates the results of examinations with the knowledge of patient problems and basic human biology to better understand disease processes. Students on this rotation are exposed to all facets of our diagnostic methods, and are expected, in conjunction with a staff pathologist, to take some responsibility for the conduct of several autopsy examinations, if available.
