Clinical pathology is one of the two major divisions within the medical specialty of pathology. A clinical pathologist is a medical doctor responsible for the diagnosis of diseases based on the analysis of body fluids like blood, urine, etc. He/she works in close collaboration with medical technologists.
The American Board of Pathology certifies clinical pathologists, and recognizes the following secondary specialties of clinical pathology:
- Chemical pathology, also called clinical chemistry
- Blood banking - Transfusion medicine
- Medical microbiology
- Molecular genetics pathology
In some country, in Western Europe or Africa this specialty can be exercized by non-physicians doctors, like Pharm.D or Ph.D after a variable number of year of residency.
For example, in France, Clinical Pathology called Medical Biology ("Biologie médicale") is both exercized by M.D and Pharm.D .
