PATHOLOGY

Pathology

Pathology is a broad general term that encompasses Histopathology/Cellular Pathology, Haematology and Microbiology. Each specialism has a separate and distinct training pathway in the UK. Demand for Pathologists in the UK has increased considerably over the past decade due to a number of factors such as increased demand for pathology services, a lack of UK doctors entering the UK training schemes for Pathology and an ageing workforce at Consultant level with a large number of retirements each year. If you enjoy a greater degree of certainty in your work, pathology offers more precision than the unpredictability that often surrounds bedside medicine.

What is required to be a Pathology specialist in the UK?

The most common path for International Histopathologists/Cellular Pathologists will be to gain GMC registration via the Royal College route of FRCPath. There will of course be opportunities for those with extensive general pathology experience who have completed the PLAB examination. For Microbiologists and Haematologists, MRCP and FRCPath are the desirable qualifications. Due to the high number of unfilled training posts within the main pathology specialisms, the prospects for international doctors gaining entry to a formal training position are extremely high.

What our experts have to say:

“My advice would be that If you want to be a pathologist there is scope for professional advancement and success if you work hard and intelligently take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. Given the reported shortages of experienced pathologists in all the subspecialties in the United Kingdom and abroad, the prospect for quick advancement is good.”
