Cellular Pathology Laboratory Practice

This course examines the role played by healthcare scientists and pathologists in the diagnosis and treatment of disease in patients. It describes general pathological principles, and specialist modules will enable you to focus on areas of interest; for example, cancer biology, laboratory processes, future of delivery of diagnostic pathology services (e.g. digital pathology), or delivery of pathology services in low-income countries. The course provides training in routine histopathological methods and introduce students to specialist diagnostic tests, e.g. molecular techniques. It also introduces the concept of laboratory management and maintenance of laboratory standards which are central to the running of an effective cellular pathology service.
