Pathology has always been regarded as the lynchpin of medicine that links the basic disciplines with clinical subjects. Pathology has advanced from being an entirely morphological and descriptive subject to one that deals with the most advanced molecular research and is at the forefront of research in molecular pathology and cancer. Its study is aimed at elucidating the molecular basis of disease. We can apply this knowledge to improve medical diagnoses and treatment of patients. At TAU, the Department of Pathology is large and multi-disciplinary.We offer a variety of challenging courses to both medical and graduate students, as we are committed to educating the next generation of health care providers and biomedical scientists for success in their field.
The department teaches over 1,000 students each year in programs of the four-year track, six-year track, and B.Sc. program (joint School of Medicine-Life Science program). The department also teaches students studying physiotherapy, communication disorders, and nursing. Our curriculum serves as a model for other Israeli medical schools.
Our main offices are located on the fourth floor of the Sackler School of Medicine where the chairman, administrative staff and research laboratories are located. Additional research laboratories are located in TAU-affiliated hospitals.
