June 2020 Issue of The Pathologist

In June’s issue of The Pathologist, we bridge the gap between pathology residents and their more experienced counterparts by exploring the crucial role of pathologists’ assistants. When hesitant to approach pathology faculty, trainees can turn elsewhere for guidance – and we interview a range of experts to find out how PAs help prepare residents for a future in diagnostic medicine. Also in this issue: read about the impact of deworming when treating helminth coinfection with tuberculosis and HIV, discover how AI can be used to better understand tuberculosis, and learn how bacteria get their names. We also sit down with Harsh Mohan, Senior Consultant Pathologist at Oncquest Laboratories, Paras Hospitals, Panchkula, Haryana, India.
