Pathology at a Glance 2021/21

Pathology at a Glance 2021/22 provides a snapshot and an overview of the department’s overall performance in the preceding year. It is important to note that our primary source of information was the Faculty Activity Database (FAD). By maintaining you CV in the FAD we can generate accurate annual reports and it helps facilitate equity in the faculty review and evaluation processes.
