DEPARTMENT OF PATHOLOGY

Head of department: Dr. Alex Mremi

Pathology department is located on the underground floor, below Urology department. The department has three working units, namely Histopathology, Cytopathology and Mortuary units. The department provides diagnostic services to KCMC and other hospitals within and outside the region. Some of the services provided include:

Very soon the facility will establish Immunohistochemisty diagnostic tests to increase the diagnostic capacity especially for tumors and also frozen section procedures that will allow intra-operative diagnosis.
The department is engaged in Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College teaching activities as well, particularly Medical doctor students, Laboratory science, Masters of medicine, AMO's and other allied health students.
Pathology department has a strong collaboration with Nijmegen University of The Netherlands, whereby senior pathologists have been regularly visiting KCMC providing services. We invite inquiries from persons wishing to collaborate with us in any of these activities.
