Online gallery of macroscopic pathology photos

We are continuously working on improving our teaching methods and available study aids for our students, and that is why at the moment we are  working on creating a dedicated online gallery of macroscopic pathology photos, all sourced from our own archives of autopsy and biopsy cases.

The gallery will serve as an extra resource of reliable, teacher-verified information to provide you with as high-yield study materials as possible.The gallery should be finished and published during March 2020 and the students will be informed about its launch during their regular classes as soon as it is ready. The link to the gallery will be provided here, on our department website.

Until our gallery is ready, we invite you to make use of some of the freely available online galleries of other institutions, such as the Pathology Education Instructional Resource Library (PEIR).
