Abstract about the branch of Pathology and forensic medicine
Since its foundation in the third year after the establishment of the Faculty of Medicine in 1979, the Laboratory of Pathology and Forensic Medicine has been designed to qualify the students of preliminary studies in this college in order to be doctors familiar with pathology and forensic medicine. This was by providing them with scientific and practical expertise and through knowledge of the causes and associated changes in this field as well as by deepen the link between medical colleges and the society through training courses and rehabilitation of personnel in this specialization. The lab also aims to develop teaching staff, providing them all the needs of scientific research (especially for those who seeking to conduct rigorous research). The lab also includes a special laboratory for graduate students (Master and PhD) where it provides all modern equipment and techniques to facilitate the work of the student during the period of completion of research projects. Finally, the pathology lap sought to provide services with low wages to patients through examinations of immunohistochemistry in Najaf governorate as well as neighboring governorates.
This lab contains a number of computers (laptops & desktop computers) and data show. The lap is used by the students of the college for the purpose of study, discussions as (small group), and workshops in some cases. Besides, Courses that published in the university courses guide are also set up there. These Courses receive a number of participants from inside and outside college and university.
