Pathologists play both technical and leadership roles in laboratory medicine. A pathologist is a specialist doctor with at least a masters degree in any of the sub-specialties in pathology.
In Kenya, there are about 92 practicing pathologists according to the practice register maintained by the Kenya Medical Practitioner and Dentists Council (KMPDC). This works out to 1 pathologist for every half a million Kenyans. With ever increasing workloads due to demands of modern healthcare, the role of pathologist is becoming ever more critical. Of special note is the emerging threat of non-communicable diseases e.g cancer and kidney diseases. These require accurate and timely diagnosis for best outcomes.
