Tasters in School of Pathology

Tasting Menu

We aim to offer a diverse range of opportunities for trainees to come and see for themselves what training and working in pathology can mean. This is available as part of the Foundation Programme for those in F1 and F2. Any other trainees are free to contact us and make arrangements on an individual basis too. We cover all geographical regions, and specialty disciplines. Typically this will involve 2-3 days of shadowing consultants to sample the day to day working environment, the opportunity to test skills and aptitude, and a chance to meet registrars on the programme. Any of the sites listed here will be happy to take trainees from any part of the region, so feel free to contact any of these trainers.
