IHeartPathology.net is a website designed by pathology resident, Tiffany M. Graham, M.D., with the aim of spreading her knowledge and passion for pathology with others.
The aim is to serve as a one-stop-shop for all your pathology resources including on-call questions, downloadable templates for each rotation, tips on how to nail a particular subject along with plenty of other pathology tidbits of information.
While much of the content posted is geared towards sharing tidbits of pathology information with other residents, fellows or practicing pathologists, it can be viewed by anyone who loves pathology and wants to learn more about it.

Surgical Pathology (commonly referred to as "Surg Path") is the "meat" of the pathology field. Here, the pathology lab receives any specimen sent from the OR or clinician. Examples include biopsies, tumor resections, excisions etc.
The tissue is then "grossed" (examined & sectioned through) looking for any lesions. Representative sections (or the entire specimen) are submitted then made into a microscope slide for pathologists to examine.
Pathologists are able to make a diagnosis based on a combination of the clinical history, what they see at the microscope and the results of any special tests (such as stains or molecular testing). The final pathology report is then created and sent to the clinician/patient.

My Educational Journey:
I graduated summa cum laude with my B.S. in Biochemistry with a Chemistry minor from East Carolina University in 2010. I then completed the basic science portion of my medical training in St. Maarten at American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC). I had the opportunity to complete my clinical rotations at Ealing Hospital in London, England as well as several prestigious hospitals in the US. I graduated medical school in the top 10% of my medical school class in 2014.
AP/CP Pathology Residency:
I am currently in my 4th year of AP/CP Pathology residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Anticipated completion date: June 30, 2019.
I will be attending the Medical University of South Carolina- Charleston for the gastrointestinal/hepatobiliary pathology fellowship. Anticipated completion date: June 30, 2020.
