UK - Molecular Diagnostics Training School 2020
NMPN & the Pathological Society of Great Britain & Ireland

The Molecular diagnostics Training School is returning for its sixth year in 2020. The 3 day course will run from 28th - 30th September at the Park Plaza Hotel in Nottingham.

 

Overview

Diagnostic Molecular Pathology is the interrogation of tissue-derived molecules (DNA/RNA/protein) to provide clinically useful information adjunctive to routine histopathological examination. The Nottingham Molecular Pathology Node (NMPN), supported by The Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland, will run the fifth training school in Diagnostic Molecular Pathology which aims to:

  • Teach the theory and utility/limitations of commonly used tests

  • Provide a comprehensive overview of the current use of molecular diagnostics

The course is suitable for Trainee and Consultant Pathologists with little or no experience of diagnostic molecular pathology and for non-clinical scientists (who may have some experience with molecular testing) wishing to learn more about the clinical application of molecular diagnostics. Teaching will be delivered in the form of formal didactic lectures, interactive tutorials and problem-solving exercises.

 

CPD

We will apply for CPD points for this programme. In previous years the course has been awarded 17 CPD points by the Royal College of Pathologists. Delegates will receive  a CPD certificate following full attendance at the event.

Image Analysis Training School

Delegates attending the MDTS can register for the Image Analysis Training School which takes place on the 1st & 2nd October 2020 free of charge

Covid-19

We appreciate that these are very uncertain times or everyone and it is unknown how long social distancing measures will remain in place. We are therefore offering the opportunity to reserve a place on the course 'free of charge'. We will continue to assess the situation, and if it is safe to go ahead with the course, we will ask any registered delegates to pay for their place in August 2020.
