Our Story
"PathElective started as a means of helping students continue clinical pathology training during the pandemic, but it has become so much more. It is now a home for educational content creators, a space to share resources, and most importantly, a space to grow. Whether you are a medical student, a student in health sciences, a pathology resident, a trainee in medicine, or even a patient, we have worked hard to seek out master educators across the various disciplines in pathology and laboratory medicine to bring you a free, accessible, modular adjunct to your pathology education. We are proud to continue our mission as an official publication of the Association for Academic Pathology."
