In case you’re wondering who’s authoring this blog…I am an M.D., and I have completed a combined anatomic and clinical pathology residency with fellowships in hematopathology and molecular pathology. I’m an Assistant Professor of Pathology and I love my job.
I have taught medical student pathology since 1993 and dental student pathology since 2005, with lectures covering a bunch of different areas including hematopathology, endocrine pathology, dermatopathology, cardiac pathology, renal pathology, microbiology, and immunology.
The goal of this website is to help make pathology understandable – and fun – for medical students, dental students, and allied health students. Following the posts is a quick and easy way to add to – or clarify – concepts being covered in class. It’s also a great way to supplement board reviewing, if I do say so myself.
There are a few things you may want to do in addition to checking in on the website:
1. Sign up to receive the posts by email. Kind of like an RSS feed only better, because I don’t like RSS feeds. Signup is over on the left sidebar.
2. Sign up to receive Pathology Bites, a Monday-through-Friday email consisting of a small pathology tidbit, sometimes with a photo. Usually there’s a question in the subject of the email, so you can kind of test yourself before you open the email. Sign up is also on the left sidebar.
3. Get the “Top 10 Anemias to Know for Boards” study guide. It’s a nice little summary of, well, the ten anemias you should make sure you know for boards. Or for any pathology course. You can find out more here.
