1) Cardiothoracic surgery            

Cardiothoracic surgeons specialise in
the treatment and management of diseases that occur in the organs inside the
chest and in the bony structures and tissues that form the chest cavity.
Coronary artery disease is one of the most common diseases treated by
cardiothoracic surgeons. General thoracic surgeons primarily treat lung cancer
and diseases of the esophagus and chest wall. Congenital heart surgeons care
for babies and children with holes between the heart chambers or abnormal
connections within the heart. Listed below are some examples of diseases
treated by cardiothoracic surgeons.
• Coronary artery disease or blockages of the arteries in the heart
• Blockages in the heart valves
• Leaking heart valves
• Abnormal enlargement or aneurysms of the large arteries in the chest
• Heart failure
• Atrial fibrillation


2) Chemical pathology

Chemical pathology is the branch of pathology which deals
with the diagnosis and management of disease by use of chemicals present in
body fluids and tissues. Typically, chemical pathology laboratories are the
largest sub-units in pathology departments and commonly perform measurements of
many different chemicals on hundreds of patient samples each day. Because many
of these analyses are time-critical, the chemical pathology laboratory is
usually highly automated and uses complex analysers that are capable of
performing many analyses in a short time frame. Chemical pathologists are
responsible for running these laboratories, ensuring the quality of the
results, and providing a diagnostic service and advice to clinicians. This
requires a sophisticated knowledge of the pathophysiology of disease, the
diagnostic value of individual tests, and also of the work of the laboratory. A
significant part of the work of the chemical pathologist entails oral
communication with clinical colleagues, and for this reason significant
emphasis is put on oral communication skills both in training and in assessment
