Joint trainees in medical microbiology/infectious diseases and medical virology/infectious diseases

As part of an agreement between the JRCPTB and the Royal College of Pathologists, all joint trainees in medical microbiology/infectious diseases and medical virology/infectious diseases need to enrol with both Colleges. This is in order that joint trainees can also take advantage of the benefits this College offers to its own registered trainees.
