The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine was established on September 1, 1974, when Kanazawa Medical University Hospital was opened. The original faculty members were Professor Terahata (also the head of the Central Clinical Laboratory), senior assistant professor Nagata (also the head of the Blood Transfusion Service), and assistant professor Teraoka (also the Central Clinical Laboratory chief technician). They were responsible for establishing and running the new Central Clinical Laboratory, which was equipped with a new, state of the art large analyzer. They spent several years preparing for the establishment of the department and getting the hospital work on track, and then built the foundation for the current Central Clinical Laboratory and Blood Center.
After Prof. Terahata retired in 1995, senior assistant professors Fukunaga and Hayase ran the department by themselves for six years. In 2001, Dr. Nojima, who transferred from Hokkaido University in 1994 to become the first professor of the hospital pathology division, became the Department Chair. In the same year, Assistant Professor Kurose joined the department and in 2007, Prof. Minato from Kanazawa University came to work in the department.
In July 2017, Professor Yamada, who came from Kagoshima University, became the Department Chair and Professor.
