Overview

This symposium, held jointly with the ACP, is aimed at ACP members, RCPath fellows, members, trainees, medical students and others interested in pathology education in Wales. Delegates will be inspired by a range of talks on pathology education including the how to make best use of social media, how to get the most out of pathology opportunities in Cardiff & Swansea Universities, quality improvement in training and the value of mentoring. They will meet the President Prof Jo Martin and other honorary officers and find out what the College does in Wales. A celebration of the NHS at 70 will be held over the breaks and delegates are invited to share their emblems of pathology in the NHS.

This symposium will cover domains 1, 3 and 6 of the GMC Trainer Standards.

Trainees will have the opportunity to meet with the President and discuss any relevant matters.  This is a Free event, but we do require formal registration.
