Welcome to Pathologists Anonymous.

Dr K stands up and raises her hand

"I'm Dr K and I'm a pathologist"

Because sometimes this is what is feels like in pathology when few people understand what you do and some think 'pathologist' translates as 'psychopathic body snatcher'.

"I'm Dr K and I'm a pathologist. I don't steal human organs and keep them in a cellar. I don't hack dead bodies into pieces. I do think that patients should get the most accurate diagnosis from their tissue samples. I do think investigating why people die is important and I know that every day pathologists do things that help patients even though they usually never meet them."
