Loma Linda University affirms the values below as central to its view of education. The Pathologists’ Assistant Program concurs with these values and upholds these values as central to the education of any medical professional.
Pathologists’ Assistants (PAs) are mid-level medical providers (analogous to a Physician’s Assistant) working in the surgical and autopsy divisions of the Pathology Department under the supervision of a medical doctor, usually a Pathologist.
In addition to clinical duties, PAs are also trained for management of the laboratory, tissue banking, teaching at the college/university level, and research presentation.
