School of Dermatological Sciences, TUF, arranged a model display under the supervision of Dr Rabia Mahmood. It was a source of practical learning for the students. Students displayed 3D models of dermatological disorders with a brief description of their pathology. A thorough study of the relevant topic enhanced their knowledge up to a remarkable level. Creation of a 3D model polished their innovative skills. Presenting and demonstrating the models meliorated the communication skills of the students.

Pathology is a branch of medical science that involves the study and diagnosis of disease through the examination of surgically removed organs, tissues (biopsy samples), bodily fluids, and in some cases the whole body (autopsy). Pathology also includes the related scientific study of disease processes whereby the causes, mechanisms and extent of disease are examined. Areas of study include cellular adaptation to injury, necrosis (death of living cells or tissues), inflammation, wound healing, and neoplasia (abnormal new growth of cells). Pathologists specialize in a wide range of diseases including cancer and the vast majority of cancer diagnoses are made by pathologists. They play a critical role in research, advancing medicine and devising new treatments to fight viruses, infections and diseases like cancer.
