Advances in the Pathology Lab
Some of the most significant updates in the world of medicine occur in the lab. The pathology lab to be precise. Pathology isn't the most popular specialty among medical students, but it's gaining momentum because more and more students are recognizing that you can have a fairly normal lifestyle as a pathologist. Think about how technology has allowed us to understand the science of diseases. The electron microscope is a brilliant invention! Modern technology will only improve our ability to understand diseases at a molecular level.
The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) is having "Lab Week" this week. The theme is: "Laboratory Professionals Get Results."
