We are hoping to help you evolve as proactive, intellectually-curious, and hospital laboratory aware future-doctors, who know when and how to consult with Pathologists and molecular labs, how to weigh the cost/benefit ratio of any molecular testing decision, and how to read your own pathology note on EPIC as part of patient care. The objectives throughout each Clerkship are to:
- Learn how to select the appropriate laboratory work-up for common clinical disorders (Mayo Clinic Labs; ARUP Test Directory)
- Review the results from clinical laboratory studies and anatomic pathology reports (How to Find Pathology Results and Reports on Epic)
- Interpret the results of laboratory and/or anatomic pathology reports, and use to refine your differential diagnoses , assessments, and plans.
- Page the appropriate AP or CP service pagers, or e-mail/visit a JHH Pathology faculty, fellow, or resident to ask questions or see the specimen for yourself!
Each clerkship link contains Lab resources and JHU Pathology Faculty contact information allowing MS3-MS4 students to gain exposure to the Pathology field as they rotate through each clinical clerkship.
