About this section

The Pathology Section forms the cornerstone of medical practice. All four specialties (biochemistry, haematology, histopathology and microbiology) are essential in both general practice and hospital medicine. Each specialty has its own unique practice and challenges, particularly with the advancements in technology and media communication. This Section aims to provide medical education in these areas.

Section Council members

Section meetings and conferences are usually organised by members of the Section Council, led by the Section President and often in collaboration with specialist societies.
