Open Pathology Positions

Pathology concerns the medical practice of studying human diseases and injuries, such as how they are caused and how they affect the people who get them. An expert in pathology is a pathologist, a doctor with a broad range of expertise in various fields of medicine and biology.

Pathologists undergo vigorous laboratory training using advanced genetic research technology to study bodily tissues and cells. The purpose is to look for signs of cancer, injury, or disease in these tissues and cells. For instance, when a disease has compromised human cells, pathologists can study them to understand the nature of the disease and how the body responds to it.

Pathologists spend a lot of time researching and studying diseases and potential treatments. In fact, they make valuable contributions to clinical research studies and to discovering medical treatments for combatting the latest infections and viruses. That is why many vaccines invented over the last hundred years were with the help of pathologists.

There are various ways in which pathologists may study human cells and tissues. Here is a breakdown of three types of pathologists and how they operate:

Surgical Pathologist – Surgically removes tissues and skin samples from a patient and studies them under a microscope. A surgical pathologist may also perform autopsies on dead bodies to determine their cause of death, whether from a disease or injury. Law enforcement and legal professionals often retain the services of surgical pathologists for this very purpose.
Cytopathologist – Specifically focuses on studying infected cells to diagnose or study diseases. The cytopathologist will collect tissue or cell samples from exfoliated skin. Sometimes they may even use a fine needle to collect samples. A cytopathologist is the best equipped to diagnose infectious diseases and cancers.
Molecular Pathologist – Studies the molecules of a person’s bodily tissues, fluids, or organs to diagnose a disease. Molecular analytics is a relatively new form of pathology that has allowed pathologists to offer more effective and personalized treatment options to patients

Pathologists work with various doctors, medical specialists, nurses, and other professionals to understand the cause and effect of a patient’s disease or injury. You can find plenty of pathology jobs in hospitals and private medical settings because it is a popular field of medicine.
