Health Care Scientist Reporting in Histopathology: Stage A: GI, Gynae & Skin Exam Preparation Day

This day has been designed specifically for those working towards the scientist reporting qualification and approaching or contemplating undertaking their stage A examination.
The day has been developed by Karen Ezard, Laura Saberton, Clare Raubusch who have experience in and have qualified through the part A examination.
There are Gastro-intestinal, Gynaecology and Skin modules which will run concurrently.
This is an exam preparation course. There will be advice and useful hints and tips from those that have taken the examinations along with an opportunity to discuss submitting a successful portfolio but it is not a morphology course. Participants will undertake a mock examination based around cases that might easily appear in the exam. Individual detailed feedback on performance will be provided to each candidate after the course either by e-mail or MS Teams, as per individual request.
The programme has been updated to make it suitable for those studying for the limited scope reporting options.
