What attracted you to pathology?

Pathology is a specialty that is focused on understanding the nature of the diseases. The knowledge is used for diagnosis, prognosis assessment, disease monitoring, and treatment, which are essential subjects in clinical medicine. I am particularly amazed by the intellectual challenge in diagnostic anatomic pathology, with the excitement of solving puzzles every day. In addition, the cutting-edge technologies and revolutionary findings in basic biomedical sciences are frequently pioneered in the field of pathology. Most importantly, the joy from work goes perfectly in line with best patient care. With that, pathology is the perfect career choice for me and I have been enjoying it ever since I started my residency training.

What attracted you to pathology?

When I started medical school, I wasn't sure where my career would go. During my second year, however, I was captivated by the field of anatomic pathology. My interest in visual imagery and problem-solving were both best satisfied by this field. As I embarked on my residency, I knew I had chosen the right field. In pathology, I found a lifelong path of learning about human disease and was fascinated by the daily exercise of putting the gross and microscopic findings together with the clinical picture to arrive at the correct diagnosis.
