Thank you so much for visiting the I Heart Pathology website!
I am so glad you are here! I hope you find this website useful.
I gladly welcome any feedback or any suggestions.
Please take a moment to read the terms and conditions below.
The Purpose of IHeartPathology.net:
I made this website while studying for the American Board of Pathology exams. By incorporating graphic design and my artistic side with the studying process, it encouraged me to actually want to study. I found that creating beautiful infographics based off "boring tables" helped me to really learn and retain the information more successfully. Thus, I made this website with the aim of creating a centralized, organized, easily-accessible resource for my own personal use. Given its utility, I wanted to share it with others.
This site is intended for the purpose of sharing knowledge and spreading the love of pathology with others. It contains many graphics, tables and content adapted from a plethora of educational pathology reference books, journals, publications and websites. The information, including but not limited to, text, graphics, images and other material contained on this website are for informational purposes only. The purpose of this website is to promote broad consumer understanding and knowledge of various health topics. It is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

Why do I have to become a member to see certain pages?

Thus, I may include images, tables or diagrams from various references in those circumstances. Special care has been taken to directly link or credit any source.
