This book includes essential tips and tricks for those who are interested in Pathology as a science and as a practice. Pathologists, Researchers and Lecturers will find vital issues that were poorly represented in large textbooks. This book "Pathology Concepts in Histopathology Diagnosis, Interviews and Exams" is essential for Pathology trainees who are intending to enter a Pathology exam, an interview or to progress in their Pathology training. In this book you will find a summary of the important subjects in basic knowledge, histopathology, cytopathology, autopsy, Pathology research and immunohistochemistry. The book contains selected mnemonics, diagnostic tips, differential diagnoses, and the core regulations of clinical audit, clinical governance, multidisciplinary meetings, team working and many other aspects of pathology practice
From the Inside Flap
The major problems in understanding Pathology are its hard- to- recognize basics and terms, the variety of morphologic presentations of a single disease, the complex interconnections between Pathology and other clinical specialities, in addition to, jumbled study sources. Pathology atlases and textbooks provide facts, observations, or research studies related to disease morphology, but they do not provide the state-of-art methodology of how to reach the diagnosis or what are the required skills to dissect, to report, or to diagnose certain disease. The inaccuracy in using terms in our lives has been extended to Pathology textbooks. This can be exemplified by the use of the word "moment" in our daily life, although we have stated that minutes or seconds are the time units. This is why you would find non-scientific descriptive or non-quantitative words as slightly larger, less hyperchromatic...etc in Pathology textbooks without signifying the denominator of these terms.
This book attempts to crossover the compact textbooks by making casts for thinking in Pathology aiming to construct an independent pathologist's opinion and interpretation. The book teaches how could you reach the final diagnosis through a logic approach, how to assemble a database, when to summarise and when to expand a subject and how to be a perfect researcher and lecturer. The book highlights the practical tricks, mnemonics, key facts, differential diagnostic tips and many other guidelines to make Pathology a fun. The book is crucial for those who plan to enter an exam, to augment their competence level or to be always stand-by for a challenge at the trainee or consultant levels.
The book is not intended to include everything in Pathology, but to open an access for a better correlation and framing of Pathology topics and to organize the learning priorities. I believe that "working smarter is better than working harder".
"The Skilful Pathologist: Pathology Concepts in Histopathology Diagnosis, Interviews & Exams" is a must-have book for Pathology trainees, consultants, demonstrators and lecturers in addition to researchers.
