Summer school 2016

The British Division of the International Academy of Pathology, The Royal College of Pathologists, The Association of Clinical Pathologists and Pathological Society of GB & Ireland held the third annual Summer School for UK medical students at the Gordon Museum of Pathology at Guy's Hospital, London on 19th & 20th August 2016. This was aimed at  UK medical students interested in pursuing a career in one of the specialties in pathology, this was an opportunity to find out about the diverse role of pathology in healthcare and how pathologists contribute to important advances in healthcare in the UK and beyond.

This was a great opportunity for medical students in any year of training to find out about careers in pathology and cutting-edge research, meet current trainees and world-leading experts. They spent time in small groups, finding out about all the different specialties. Discovering first-hand about day-to-day working as a pathologist, and encouraged them to think about other aspects of healthcare provision that pathologists are involved in.

Over 100 applications were received and 80 students were selected to take part.

We would also like to thank the kind support of the British Neuropathology Society, British Society of Haematology and the British Infection Association for their involvement in the event.
