eClinpath was originally created by Drs. Julia Blue and Tracy French, veterinary clinical pathologists at Cornell University, for helping teach veterinary students clinical pathology with the new (at that time) self-driven case-based curriculum at Cornell University. This site was written and coded by Dr. French using a now “ancient” code writer (self-taught). The site text was populated by a textbook that Drs. Blue and French had written for the students at Cornell University (and was only available internally). At that time, there were far fewer resources on veterinary clinical pathology than there are now (very few of the current textbooks were available). The site was initially only used internally in the College but then Dr. French made it available on the world-wide web in the early 1990s. It was the first veterinary clinical pathology-related website. Updating the design and navigability site has been a long-term goal, which has come to fruition, but still lots of work to do and lots more to add. This will be a life-long commitment, including adding references to the site (which is currently not a referenced resource).
Site content is currently maintained and updated by Dr. Tracy Stokol, with the help of the other veterinary clinical pathologists – see below. Images are generated from our digital camera by all veterinary clinical pathologists and clinical pathology trainees – we only use our own images, unless we have permission for other image use. All veterinary clinical pathologists and trainees contribute to Case of the Month. Students on a Veterinary Clinical Pathology Opportunity Block at Cornell University are also responsible for generating a Case of the Month as part of a rotation requirement and some of these cases are or will be posted on the site.

Credit (and effusive thanks) for the new site goes to the following people:
- Paul Miller: Designer, creator, web guru and host of the site. Maintains and updates style sheets, navigation, search engines, etc.
- Jorge Adarraga (veterinary student at Cornell University, Class of 2016): Generation of new content, transfer of old pages to new format.
- Cheryl Wong (veterinarian from Australia): Generation of new content (Dr. Wong is responsible for creating the quick guide to interpretation of chemistry tests, among many other things she has done for the site), transfer and updating format of old pages to new pages, design advisor.
- Gail Babcock (laboratory manager of the Clinical Pathology Laboratory at Cornell University): Organizing and keeping us on track, hiring of content creators for the site and generally just being there and making sure everything gets done and everyone is happy.
- Bakhtawar Mazhar (Masters of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University; Class of 2015): Designer and programmer.
- Drs. Julia Felippe and Lauren Warnick (Director and Associate Dean of Education, respectively, at Cornell University): Financial support for generation of the site.
