Learning Environment for Pathology Trainees (LEPT)

Chemical Pathology, Histopathology, Medical Microbiology and Virology

The Learning Environment for Pathology Trainees (LEPT) is a web-based system for workplace-based assessment and multi-source feedback (MSF), which also includes an e-Portfolio to support the ARCP process.

It is for Specialty Registrars (StRs) appointed to one of the following from August 2007:
a. a specialty training programme with a National Training Number (NTN)
b. a fixed term specialty training appointment (FTSTA)
c. a locum appointment for training (LAT)

The LEPT system should also be used by trainees who have transferred to any of the pathology curricula approved in 2010 and beyond by the General Medical Council (GMC).

The quality of the screenshots is low, but sufficient when used alongside the LEPT system on screen. The Word version is very large (6.6 MB) and will take far longer to download.)
