Proposing that pathology reorganize, the author introduces a role model for clinical pathology that contains skills and capabilities not currently offered in the clinical practice of medicine. This proposed rebuilding of a clinical discipline, to avoid continued degradation of the pathologist's role in the practice of medicine, will require teaching institutions to instill a new concept of clinical pathology, and the author pinpoints the tool that will be required to make this urgently needed transition to a new type of practice.
