Histopathology

This section of the website is for histopathology trainees, or those interested in pursuing a CCT in histopathology. StRs, FTSTAs and LATs appointed or transferred to the 2007/08 and 2010 histopathology curricula must use the Learning Environment for Pathology Trainees (LEPT) to record their progress in training.

Histopathology Transitional Arrangements
These transitional arrangements are for histopathology NTN holders in a GMC-approved UK histopathology training programme (leading to the award of the CCT or CESR(CP)) transferring to the 2010 GMC-approved histopathology curriculum and assessment system. The transitional arrangements were approved by the GMC on 26 November 2010 but have subsequently been amended and republished in order to reflect the GMC position statement Moving to the Current Curriculum (November 2012). These amended arrangements have also been approved by the GMC.
