Cytology and pathology training course dates confirmed for 2018

NEPSEC, the North of England Pathology and Screening Education Centre, has confirmed dates in the coming months for some of its most popular training courses.

The education centre, which has sites at Manchester Royal Infirmary and in Leeds, runs a series of courses throughout the year providing essential training in cytology and other pathology disciplines.

The latest calendar is now available at the NEPSEC website.

A number of courses which were very well received last year are being run again in 2018 including:

  • Breaking bad news - a one day workshop on the challenges of delivering awkward information for those involved in screening programmes
  • BMS reporting of histopathology - A mock exam course for people working towards the BMS histology reporting qualification, with hints and tips from those who have already taken the exam
  • BMS Specimen dissection - a 10-part modular course, ideal for those training or trained in histological tissue specimen dissectors and taking the Diploma of Expert Practice
  • Diploma of Expert Practice in Non Gynae - a four-day course for those taking the IBMS Expert Practice in Non-Gynaecological Cytology Diploma and for experienced staff looking for an update

If you are interested in any of the above courses, contact NEPSEC for more details.

The education centre is also able to deliver bespoke training tailored to particular requirements, including conversion training, return to work, poor performance assessment and re-training, along with non-gynaecological cytology specialist workshops, such as thyroid or EBUS, and histology workshops in association with professional groups.
