"Anatomic pathology is a medical specialty essential to understand the physiopathological processes of disease, to correlate them with clinical medicine and to arrive at a diagnosis to be able to help with treatment."

Eraña Rojas believes herself to be a researcher that, based on relevant clinical information, medical knowledge, and macroscopic and microscopic information, is capable to diagnose the pathologies in patients. She is certain that her challenge as an anatomopathologist is to keep herself up to date to arrive at a more accurate and complete diagnosis and to be of help on the patients' search for health. As a teacher, her main challenge is for her students to enjoy the learning process so that, despite difficulties, they feel pride when they finish their studies and have the necessary enthusiasm to continue their professional training.
