As a pathologist, you'll work within the medical laboratory of a hospital. You may provide clinical support for the lab or oversee its management.

In histopathology, you will be mostly lab-based.

  • Although specific tasks vary according to your specialty, there are some responsibilities common to all specialities and you'll typically need to :
  • Examine and talk to a range of patients, using diagnostic skills to determine what tests need to be carried out
  • Support and advise clinical staff to help them choose the correct tests
  • Work alongside healthcare scientists while they complete laboratory tests
  • Educate colleagues in the use and limitations of each diagnostic investigation
  • Provide advice and interpretation of test results and the appropriateness of further investigations
  • Conduct ward rounds and outpatient clinics (as a histopathologist patient contact is limited, unless you're undertaking a specific role such as taking fine-
  • needle aspiration cytology specimens in breast clinics)

  • Undertake managerial responsibilities, such as planning the workload and staffing of the department, especially at more senior levels
  • Supervise and teach junior medical staff (depending on your post)
  • Carry out research and keep up to date with new information relevant to your field.
