Bio
I work as a Pathologists' Assistant, which is a lesser known career in lab medicine. Most of the work I do consists of taking surgical specimens and choosing nickel sized pieces of them to be analyzed by the pathologist under a microscope. (For instance, if someone had her uterus removed for endometrial cancer, I would measure and take cuts of sections of the tumor). I also teach and perform medical autopsies. This job involves a knowledge of normal anatomy and disease, and is perfect for anyone who likes hands on work behind the scenes.
