Basis for clinical disciplines

Teaching in pathology provides the basis for the study of the clinical disciplines. Since it builds on knowledge from the preclinical areas (anatomy, histology, physiology, biology, biochemistry, etc.) and takes into account the clinical situation, pathology mediates between the basic sciences and the clinical disciplines.
