In July 2016, our members will cycle 299 miles from London to Paris to raise funds for the College’s global health projects and activities in low and middle income countries.
We are delighted to introduce to you #TeamRCPath
The team aims to raise £9000 in sponsorship from their friends, family, colleagues and the RCPath community! If you would like to donate, please visit the group’s sponsorship page.
The Royal College of Pathologists has a long-established commitment and track record of contributing to the improvement of pathology and laboratory medicine services in under-resourced countries through education and training. 100% of the money raised from this challenge will be used to support and deliver the College’s global health work. This work includes laboratory systems strengthening projects and activities such as:
- Sending volunteer pathologists overseas to mentor and train laboratory staff in low income countries;
- Providing education bursaries to overseas doctors and scientists, which will allow them to undertake a period of specialist training, research or study either within their country or externally; and
- Working with others to re-build the laboratory systems in countries where the health system has been weakened as a result of a humanitarian disaster or emergency situation.
