Pathologist Assistant Schools and Colleges

Pathology assistants are responsible for providing clerical services, cataloguing lab results and medical records, evaluating specimens, assisting pathologists with autopsies, and maintaining autopsy records. During two year pathology assistant graduate programs, students are introduced to hematopatholoy, neuropathology, cytopathology, anatomy, and clinical pathology. Additionally, students complete extensive clinical hours in medical laboratories and medical examiner’s offices.

Most pathology assistant graduate programs only admit students who hold undergraduate degrees in pre-medicine, biology, chemistry, or other scientific majors. Those with degrees in non-related fields can still apply after completing prerequisite courses in math, biology, and chemistry and completing a specified amount of laboratory hours.
