Learn from our video lecture series on chemical pathology, haematology, histopathology and microbiology, developed to support pathology trainees in Ghana.

The introduction of brand-new learning resources in the form of twenty-four video lectures was launched at a virtual event, where addresses where given by RCPath President, Professor Mike Osborn, and Dr John Nkrumah-Mills, President of the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons (GCPS).

Supported by the implementation of their recently revised curricula, the Faculty of Laboratory Medicine of the GCPS are keen for the training of their Residents in Laboratory Medicine to meet international standards. The video series, mapped to the new curricula, supports the Ghana Residents in their training and continued professional development.

The videos will provide learning opportunities that will support better practice, patient management, and improved outcomes, helping to tackle some of the challenges at the forefront of pathology in Ghana and worldwide.

The College thanks the many pathologists and scientists based in the UK and overseas who developed and delivered the lectures on Chemical Pathology, Haematology, Histopathology (Anatomical Pathology), and Microbiology. Under each speciality are six different lectures. Three support the Ghana College of Physicians membership training programmes, and the other three support their fellowship training programmes.

The videos have been made possible by a collaboration with the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons, with The Tropical Health Education Trust (THET) Ghana Workforce Health Partnership. This was funded through the Building the Future International Workforce Programme (Ghana) by the UK Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) to benefit the UK and partner country health sectors

The Partnership provides the opportunity for the UK to demonstrate ethical leadership in shaping the migration and mobility of health workers through mutually beneficial partnerships that can strengthen the NHS and the health services of lower middle-income countries (LMICs) to achieve health workforce sustainability in an increasingly mobile world.
