In brief: Consultant to MDs

One definition and function of a pathologist is to be a doctor to other doctors, or serve as a consultant to other doctors.
Pathologists perform diagnostic tests and interpretations of tissues, blood, urine etc. They ensure safe and adequate supply of blood and blood products for transfusion. They conduct research to advance medical knowledge and teach medical students and other doctors.
