The Department of Pathology is a content development project where participants create, organize, and develop learning resources for pathology.
Pathology derives from pathos (disease ) and logos ( study ). Literally meaning "the study of disease". Pathology emphasized four aspects of the disease process. These are the cause (etiology), the mechanism of development (pathogenesis), the alterations of structure and forms (morphology) and functional alterations (pathophysiology). .Due to advances and increased complexity of medical sciences, pathology has many branches as clinical medicine.^ In medicine, it may refer to a condition a person has or a medication a person is taking that is not being studied in the clinical trial he or she is taking part in.

For academic purposes, Pathology has been divided in general and systemic (organ) pathology. Modern pathology has its origin in the cellular studies carried out by the German doctor Rudolf Virchow. .After Virchow, cellular adaptations and changes secondary to disease processes have been the main study subject of this medical science.^ Researchers study the medical and lifestyle histories of the people in each group to learn what factors may be associated with the disease or condition.
