I'm going to be starting an Associate's in Medical Laboratory Technology at a CC this fall. I don't have any any substantial knowledge of medicine, so maybe someone could explain this to me (not going to med school either, so I thought I'd post this here): How does pathology relate to laboratory medicine? It seems like they're always grouped into one department at universities or medical schools. One school had an option of a B.S. in CLS with a conc. in Anatomic Pathology, which sounds very interesting.
