Learn how to be a Pathologist!
A pathologist is a physician who studies the causes, nature and effects of disease by looking at bodily fluids and tissues. Some examples of things they do are: conduct blood investigations to identify blood disorders or cancers, analyze Pap smears and biopsies to check for unhealthy cells, and perform autopsies to determine a patients cause of death. Their expertise is crucial in ensuring patients receive an accurate diagnosis! This is important in determining whether or not a tissue is normal or cancer.
