Public Engagement

As a College, one of our key objectives is to inspire the next generation of pathologists. Many medical students and members of the public aren’t particularly aware of pathology, or of the essential role it plays in our healthcare system. That is why our public engagement work is so valuable.  

There are a number of opportunities to work with the College on public engagement activities, from giving careers talks to medical students and foundation doctors, to becoming a Pathology Ambassador, to helping out during National Pathology Week

Please get in touch with our Public Engagement team for more information:
