The College

Mission statement
The College is committed to promoting excellence in the study, research and practice of pathology and to be responsible for maintaining the highest standards through training, assessments, examinations and professional development, for the benefit of the public.

As a College, we need to adapt to the changes in the health service. We will forge strong links with Health Education England and the devolved nations, revising our training and education programmes to equip the consultants of tomorrow to deliver measureable improvements in clinical practice.

We must engage our members and Government, opinion formers and decision makers to support efficient, effective and sustainable pathology services nationally and internationally.

Inspiring the pathologists of the future is vital to deliver first-class patient services. We will work to boost the understanding of the essential contribution pathologists make to the range of clinical disciplines and healthcare settings.
