Pathology assistant jobs are vital to the diagnosis of medical disorders. Working under the supervision of a pathologist, pathology assistants examine medical specimens, conduct forensic testing and perform autopsies.
Although pathology assistants do not make the actual diagnosis, they perform all the work leading up to it. Their days are spent preparing, describing, photographing and dissecting medical specimens. Other duties may include tissue banking, training pathology lab personnel and conducting research.
Education requirements for pathology assistant jobs have recently changed, and candidates now need a master’s degree in pathologists’ assistant studies, health science, pathology or science from an accredited university. In addition to having a master’s degree, pathologist assistants should be analytical and detail-oriented with strong math and science skills. Although they work in offices, pathology assistant jobs are dangerous, as workers are exposed to hazardous specimens on a daily basis.
Pathologist assistant positions may be found in labs, hospitals, morgues and academic institutions. Regardless of your work environment preference, you can be sure to find a healthcare job that suits your needs at ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs. Visit today and search jobs by location, title or employer.
