Voices from the Field: Interviews with Global Health Pathology Volunteers

Timothy K. Amukele, Sarah Riley, Merih T. Tesfazghi

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Volunteerism in pathology is an uncommon experience. This article attempts to shed light on this experience based on guided narrative interviews. The authors’ interviews suggest that prototypical pathology volunteers participate in long-term missions, tend to be later in their careers, are motivated by personal reasons, get involved in volunteering through nongovernmental organizations, focuses on capacity building, and at least partially self-funds their efforts.
