The Practice of Surgical Pathology: A Beginner's Guide to the Diagnostic Process, 1st ed. 2008

The Practice of Surgical Pathology: A Beginner's Guide to the Diagnostic Process
Diana Weedman Molavi
ISBN-10: 0387744851
ISBN-13: 978-0387744858

In pathology education within North America, there exists a wide gap in the pedagogy between medical school and residency. Unlike other medical disciplines, in which the skills of history-taking, physical examination, and assessment are nurtured from the first year of medical school, the practice of pathology bears little resemblance to the visual gallery of pattern recognition that is second-year medical school pathology. Few medical schools have required clinical rotations in pathology, and many electives remain limited in scope and participation. The pathology intern often comes into residency painfully unprepared.
The Practice of Surgical Pathology: A Beginner’s Guide to the Diagnostic Process lays the foundation of practical pathology and provides a scaffold on which to build a knowledge base. It includes basic introductory material and progresses through each organ system. Within each chapter, there is a brief review of salient normal histology, a discussion of typical specimen types, a strategic approach to the specimen with a list of what to look for, and a discussion of how the multitude of different diagnoses relate to each other.

Muir's Textbook of Pathology, 14th ed. 2008

Muir's Textbook of Pathology, 14th ed. 2008 
Robin Reid, David J. Harrison, Alastair D. Burt and Stewart Fleming 
ISBN-10: 0340740620 
ISBN-13: 978-0340740620 

 First published in 1924, Muir's Textbook of Pathology has set a standard in this subject by linking the scientific aspects that underlie pathological processes, relating these pathological changes specific to the various organ systems, and placing all in context for the student of clinical medicine and surgery. Subsequent editions have retained this popular approach, while introducing novel concepts and taking into account the evolution in the teaching of general pathology that has occurred. This fully-revised 14th edition will ensure that the title retains its preeminence in the field with a clearly defined and easy-to-follow structure, new photographs and explanatory line diagrams, all in full color, and applicability to both systems-based and problem-based undergraduate courses. Focusing on core material without neglecting up-to-the-minute detail, this book is a key text for students, but also has significant appeal for pathology residents.
