About this book


In pathology education within North America, there exists a wide gap in the pedagogy between medical school and residency. The pathology intern often comes into residency painfully unprepared. The Practice of Surgical Pathology: A beginner’s guide to the Diagnostic Process lays the foundation of practical pathology and provides a scaffold on which to build a knowledge base. It includes basic introductory material and progresses through each organ system.

Diana Weedman Molavi, MD, PhD, is affiliated with the Department of Pathology, Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.

From the reviews:

"This book is designed to bridge the gap between medical school pathology and residency-level pathology … . is aimed at pathology residents in the early stages of the first year, and the author has done a great job of tailoring it to this audience. … will have great value to an incoming first year resident. … It provides a very clear orientation to pathology of the various organs, orients readers to the microscope and descriptive terms, and gives a primer on immunostains." (Jonathan Carnell, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2008)
