Welcome to! The website for Southwest England Histopathology Trainees.  Updated November 2020.

PLEASE HEAD TO OUR BLOG at this link  which is much more up to date than these pages; we also have Facebook and Twitter groups with the latter usually updated by my Plymouth colleague Dr Rob Hadden.

We are very fortunate to work in here in Devon and Cornwall with its fantastic beaches, rugged picturesque Dartmoor just north of the hospital and the beautiful South Hams Devon coastline to the East.  

Trainees please use this upload service to send me large presentation files. Upload your presentation here (please email me to let me know when you have uploaded a file and I will link it).

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.

Pathkids recommends this fantastic very affordable camera slide scanning setup (check our social media pages for some of the images we create with it and our Optra scanner). Our friend who is a jobbing pathologist made all this amazingly useful tech!

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
