Pathology Books and Journals: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Jaleh Mansouri, M.D.

Pathology, like other medical specialties, has experienced a rapid growth in knowledge, both in the basic science and clinical arena. As a result, pathologists have had to develop both subspecialty expertise and a multidisciplinary approach in keeping abreast of new developments in medicine. While books and journals devoted to pathology topics provide a basic foundation of knowledge for pathology students and residents, practicing pathologists also rely on multidisciplinary sources of information found in such venues as major medical journals (e.g., New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA), various information networks (e.g., National Comprehensive Cancer Network - NCCN), and websites devoted to evidence-based medicine (e.g., Cochrane Collaboration) and case studies.

Current pathology trends such as the increased reliance on molecular diagnostics in cancer staging and therapeutics require a working knowledge of related disciplines such as pharmacology and pharmacogenomics (e.g., monoclonal therapy). Clinical correlative studies (e.g., mammographic and breast biopsy findings) may demand a deeper understanding of modern radiologic imaging modalities on the part of the pathologist. In addition, familiarity with major clinical practice guidelines provides the pathologist with increased insight into the implications of a pathologic diagnosis. Thus, pathologists today can greatly benefit from an individualized, multidisciplinary approach to learning, utilizing resources that extend beyond the confines of pathology books and journals.
