Pathology is the scientific study of disease. In clinical practice and medical education, Pathology also has a wider meaning: Pathology constitutes a large body of Scientific Knowledge, ideas and investigative methods essential for the understanding and practice of modern Medicine. Sir William Osler, perhaps the greatest physician of recent times said:
“As is your Pathology, so is your practice.” One can not become a competent physician or surgeon without a full knowledge of Pathology
Pathology is continually subject to change, revision and expansion as the application of new scientific methods illuminates our knowledge of disease.
