5 5 Why Pathology? Interesting case material (broad and diverse) Interesting case material (broad and diverse) Profession compatible with: Profession compatible with: - Teaching (e.g., in ISC – pathologists chair immunology, microbiology, hematology, and direct the pathology and histology threads) (popular teachers – multiple Kaiser awards; six campus-wide distinguished teaching awards) - Teaching (e.g., in ISC – pathologists chair immunology, microbiology, hematology, and direct the pathology and histology threads) (popular teachers – multiple Kaiser awards; six campus-wide distinguished teaching awards)
