Overview of pathology

Pathology is a medical field where physicians care for patients using the tools of laboratory medicine. They help provide information critical to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease.  The field is divided into Anatomic and Clinical Pathology.   A large proportion of pathologists go on to pursue additional training beyond their initial four years of residency training by completing fellowship training in subspecialties such as cytopathology, hematopathology, neuropathology, microbiology, and clinical chemistry. In addition to the four years of medical school, pathologists are required to have a minimum of four years postgraduate training in pathology.
