A pathologist is a doctor who has been to medicalschool and completed additional training in pathology. Pathologists study bodily fluid, blood, and tissue samples, in order to diagnose illness or search for other medical conditions.A pathology may have a subspecialty such as clinical pathology, anatomical pathology, molecular pathology, surgical pathology, cytopathology, or forensic pathology. Some pathologists work only on samples from living people, in order to diagnose or treat diseases or conditions, while other pathologists deal with autopsies and sometimes criminal murder investigations. Although a pathologist can perform tests himself or herself, many have other medical workers perform the tests and therefore have little direct contact with patients. They use the samples to make a diagnosis or recommendation, and then pass the information on to the patient's doctor, who advises the patient.

Pathology is divided into two major specialties, anatomic and clinical pathology. Anatomic pathology deals with the tissue diagnosis. Clinical pathology deals with the laboratory test diagnosis. Most private practice pathologists are board certified in both specialties (double board certification)..........

Pathology is the study and diagnosis of disease through examination of organs, tissues, bodily fluids, and whole bodies (autopsies). The term also encompasses the related scientific study of disease processes, called General pathology.

Medical pathology is divided in two main branches, Anatomical pathology and Clinical pathology. Veterinary pathology is concerned with animal disease whereas Phytopathology is the study of plant diseases.

The laboratory is often the largest and most complex department of any hospital. This is where your blood samples, cultures, Pap smears, and biopsies are sent. It is also where the phlebotomists, the people who draw your blood samples, work.

Many pathologists also work in outpatient, freestanding laboratories. These laboratories service physicians who do not work in the hospital.
