This course is suitable for haematologists in training (particularly prior to FRCPath Part Two), Consultant Haematologists and Senior Biomedical Scientists.
- Develop your skills in microscopy
- Examine blood films and differentiate malarial parasites by microscopy
- Examine blood films and correctly identify haemoflagellates, spirochaetes and microfilariae
This one-day highly interactive short course is specifically designed to meet the needs of haematology trainees and consultants requiring an update in the morphological features of parasites. This will act as a pre-exam refresher alongside professional development to support you in the FRCPath exams.
The course develops diagnostic skills and RCPath CPD accreditation will be applied for. Course participants will have access to an extensive range of parasitological blood films: Malaria, leishmania, trypanosomes and microfilaria. These are slides that they are unlikely to see regularly during the course of their working life or indeed have regular access to elsewhere for training. The course concentrates on the identification of those parasites of medical importance likely to be seen on blood films submitted to the haematology laboratory. Short presentations by specialist staff followed by practical work at the bench to provide experience in the identification of parasites. Laboratory sessions also provide opportunities for discussion with staff on points of interest to individual course participants.
