The Pathologists' Assistant program was established in 2007. In 2012, the program was approved as a professional program leading to a Master of Clinical Sciences-Pathologists' Assistant. Our program was the first of its kind accredited in Canada. Pathologists' Assistants (PAs) are highly-trained health professionals who work under the supervision of a medically-qualified pathologist providing a broad range of services in anatomical pathology.
The extra technical skills brought to the laboratory by PAs standardize and enhance the overall quality in the practice of anatomical pathology. PAs assume major responsibility for the initial examination and dissection of all surgically removed tissues and, to a variable extent, for the dissection of bodies during post-mortem examination.
Officially accredited/recognized by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, Ontario.
