How did you discover pathology as a career?

I attended medical school at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, where pathology was – and still is – a prominent faculty. I found pathology to be highly logical; it had a scientific bent, which I’ve always valued. We had excellent teachers and, as a result, I was not the only one of my classmates who went on to a successful career in pathology. And none of us have any regrets about the decision we made!
