This is an inaugural meeting of the Haematology Clinical Science FRCPath exam preparation study day.

Date: Monday 17 May 2021

Time: 14:00-16:30

Venue: Online Zoom event 


Higher specialist scientist training (HSST) for haematology laboratory healthcare scientists is starting to become embedded in practice. However, trainees are scattered about in different UK/international hospitals and may feel isolated with little guidance available to help them. Higher specialist trainee scientists follow the Royal College of Pathology (RCPath) curriculum in haematology and undertake specialist high-stake examinations leading to qualifications suitable for consultant level healthcare scientist posts.


The day will have two purposes:


-          to encourage networking and collaborative working between higher specialist scientists training towards FRCPath examinations 


-          to provide better guidance of the academic standards required for the trainee and for their workplace educational supervisor.


The day will be suitable for HSSTs in the National School of Healthcare Science (NSHCS) programme and Healthcare Scientists working independently towards FRCPath. The meeting may also be of interest to candidates thinking about entering HSST and for trainers.


The event will be held virtually via Zoom, but the sessions will be relaxed, and interaction is encouraged.
