Pathology is a medical specialty that studies how a sequence of biologic events leads to a disease state and the effects of diseases from the molecular, cellular and eventually organ level. Pathology stands at the junction between of basic science and clinical practice and therefore helps students find the conceptual threads that unify medicine, where clinicians find a rational approach to medicine, where patients finds out whether they have a benign lesion or a malignant one. The discipline of pathology drives the translation of basic research into clinical application, and drives the translation of clinical questions into basic research. The department of Pathology at CUHAS is dedicated to teaching concepts and understanding of pathology to both the undergraduate and postgraduate students, provide patients care at the hospital and conduct research that are translational to the local medical needs.
