At a Glance

  • Personalized medicine and human genome sequencing have generated a sharp increase in the need for specialist molecular pathology services
  • Current training must change in order to retain the central role of the histopathologist in the healthcare system
  • Molecular diagnostic training is currently being effectively introduced into existing curricula, and while this has proven effective so far, it has to change to meet rising demands
  • Future pathology services must include everal subspecialists working alongside molecular pathology teams who can suitably interface between research and diagnostics
