South West & Wessex Region: Regional Training Days

The SWW region aims to hold regional training days biannually. These training days are organised by the trainees (pre-FRCPath clinical scientists and registrars) with assistance from the regional tutor when required. The training days are usually held at the nominatated organising trainee's base-hospital site. Topics covered on the training days are varied and often include some specific aspects of FRCPath examination preparation, clinical cases presented by the trainees and miscellaneous topics that can not typically be "read from a book".
