Members of Hawai`i’s small but vitally important pathology community gathered at The John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) to welcome the University of Hawai`i medical school’s new Chair of Pathology, Dr. Alan Schiller.
Pathologists are specially trained physicians who help unlock the secrets of disease. Through observing specimens to detect levels of certain chemicals, hormones, enzymes or other substances in the body, their findings help doctors diagnose illness or determine whether to conduct further study before treatment.
Dr. Schiller said there are only about 50 pathologists practicing in Hawai`i, which likely means they are busy from dawn to dusk–at the very least.
We are pleased some of them were able to come to JABSOM in Kaka`ako to celebrate Dr. Schiller’s arrival.
