Overview for Prospective Students

Johns Hopkins

Electives in Pathology provide students an excellent way of broadening their knowledge of medicine and determining their level of interest in the specialty. Most pathology electives give students first hand knowledge of the central role pathology plays in the diagnosis of disease, and as such, are valuable for students going into almost any clinical specialty.

Both general and subspecialty electives in Pathology are available. Electives in anatomic pathology focus on morphologic and histologic diagnosis, while those in the clinical laboratory illustrate the effective use and interpretation of laboratory testing. Research electives provide insight into basic pathogenesis of disease. Students who have already made a firm decision to enter postgraduate training in Pathology should contact an advisor in the department to gain assistance in planning a balanced elective program.
