We are finishing up the GI block in our surgical and systemic pathology classes. We started the block with pancreas and in lab were able to gross Whipple specimens and distal pancreatectomies. We also had guest lectures from a pancreatic surgeon and surgical oncologist and a medical student pursuing surgery. Pathology and surgery work very closely together so communication and understanding between us and surgery is very important. It was great to hear from a clinical and surgical point of view and discuss how each cut we make directly impacts patient care.
