Summer School for Medical Undergraduates 2017 – closing date 19th May

Applications are invited for the fourth annual Pathology Summer School for UK medical students. Open to students in any year of training, this two-day course offers the opportunity to find out about the wide range of pathology specialties through a mixture of lectures and small-group breakout sessions. There will be an opportunity to talk to current trainees and established consultants about their careers. This is not a revision course but a chance to learn more about the role of pathology in healthcare, including current research and future advances. The content will be relevant whether you are considering a career in pathology or not; all doctors use pathology services and benefit from a greater understanding of the specialty.

The Summer School will be held at the Gordon Museum, part of Guy’s Hospital, London. Attendance for successful applicants is free, and includes accommodation on the Friday night, all meals and two days of activities. Students from every UK medical school have attended previous events and feedback has been universally positive. The Summer School is hosted by the Royal College of Pathologists and sponsored by the College, the Pathological Society, the British Division of the International Academy of Pathology, the Association of Clinical Pathologists, the British Society for Haematology, the British Infection Association and the British Neuropathological Society.

A full programme will be available shortly, but it will consist of a full day on Friday 18th and a half day on the Saturday morning, finishing at 1pm. If you wish to apply please go the application page on the RCPath website, applications should be submitted by 19th May 2017.
