  Training days

Welcome to! The website for Southwest England Histopathology Trainees.  Updated December 2016 (Plymouth).

Apologies for the downtime. Pathkids was hacked and malicious code. My host has now seemingly sorted the problem for a reassuringly expensive fee! It may take a few days for NHS to IT to remove the site from their blacklist...

Please join our new Facebook group

Upload your own presentations using this link

The latest presentations from our invited speaker Prof Marco Novelli are on The 2016 training diary ... The provisional 2017 diary is here .

We are very fortunate to work in here at Derriford Hospital Plymouth with such an interesting caseload, 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.  

If you have a presentation that you think will be of interest to pathkids I have created an upload page here (please email me to let me know when you have uploaded a file and I will link it)

I am a digital pathology enthusiast.  Please contact me if you are a Histopathologist interested in using this technology in your own professional development.

Still lots of unbooked sessions. Please contact us to recommend a speaker or session. Look at previous training day notes. 

Pathkids recommends the following books. Please use these Amazon links below if you plan to buy one of these books it helps to support this training website.

The_EQA section includes links to online slide seminars from general and speciality EQA schemes, great revision cases!

There are 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 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.

The Teaching section has links to some powerpoint presentations from medical student and pathology trainee tutorials. Remember most of the useful presentations are linked from the training diary

There are some useful websites for your training on the links page

This website is under construction and hence some of the links may not currently work; sometimes links do not load and may need to be "refreshed". Please let me know about any dead links, and visit regularly for updates.

Please contact me for further information; any suggestions would be most welcome
