The Stage A Examination has been developed for UK trainees who are undertaking a training programme in ST1 Chemical Pathology, ST3 Chemical Pathology (Metabolic Medicine), and ST1 Histopathology. 

Trainees must be registered with The Royal College of Pathologists before applying for the Stage A Examination. The registration form and guidance for trainees is available in the Training section of our website

The purpose of the Stage A Examination is to indicate the capability and potential of a trainee through a test of applied knowledge and skills relevant to the curriculum.
