Learning materials and facilities
"I thought the course was fantastic, and everything that I have learnt is being put into practice at work. I am now the 'go-to' girl for cytology and blood results."
The contact workshop for Clinical Pathology will run alongside those for the Diagnostic Imaging, Gastroenterology and Cardiorespiratory Medicine courses. This format provides a great opportunity for you to meet students and staff from other courses within the MVM programme and to combine with them for some sessions.
The contact workshop is an opportunity for face-to-face time with your class and lecturer. Together you can build on the knowledge you’ve gained on the course through small group teaching, practical sessions and discussions of experiences in your own practice.
For the best contact workshop experience we recommend that you attend in person. While attendance is highly-recommended it is not compulsory in order to pass the course. If you can’t make it in person you will be able to join some (non-practical) sessions live via the internet (we endeavour to record these sessions for review, but are unable to guarantee the quality of the recording).
