Welcome to pathkids.com! The website for Southwest England Histopathology Trainees. Updated Jan 2015 (Plymouth).
FNA vs core biopsy and the head and neck one stop clinic - RSM radiology presentation where I was asked a lot of questions about FNA cell block / cell pellet methods
We are about to advertise for at least two full-time Consultant Pathologists here at Derriford Hospital Plymouth! We are very fortunate to work in a hospital with such an interesting caseload, in Plymouth which is situated on the Devon/Cornwall border with rugged picturesque Dartmoor just north of the hospital and the beautiful South Hams Devon coastline to the East.
There is also an additional clinical and academic Consultant job (depending on interest) partly funded through the Peninsula Medical School. We are very excited about the possibility of working with new colleagues in the near future!
My poster for Pathsoc Edinburgh June 2013 "Metastatic Intramucosal Colorectal Adenocarcinoma".
I am now using the free Webex service to teleconference difficult and interesting cases with live videolinked microscopy. Please contact me if you are a Histopathologist interested in using this technology in your own professional development. Some of my notes on digital pathology at this link.
My recent prize winning presentation at BSG2014 THE “POOR MAN’S CELL-BLOCK” SAMPLE PREPARATION METHOD FOR EUS-FNA OF MEDIASTINAL AND RETROPERITONEAL LESIONS DOES NOT REQUIRE ATTENDING PATHOLOGY STAFF OR CYTOLOGY EXPERTISE
The_EQA section includes links to online slide seminars from general and speciality EQA schemes, great revision cases!
There are now several word files of example questions for MRCPath exams in this folder, and it now also includes advice on pre-exam courses. Thanks very much to those of you who contributed, please forward any more example questions to me
The main training page also has a link to previous years diaries where you can download some of the presentations given. I don't have all the powerpoint presentations on file, so if any of you have one that is not currently posted here pls let me know and i will upload it after i have asked the consultant's permission.
There are some useful websites for your training on the links page
