Worcestershire Royal only Midlands centre hosting Royal College of Pathology final examination

Worcestershire Royal Hospital has established itself as a regional leader in Haematology education, after holding the Royal College of Pathology’s FRCPath Haematology Part 2 exam.

There are just five hospitals in the whole of the UK registered as centres for this Haematology exit exam and the Worcester site is the only one in the West Midlands.

The Royal College of Pathology conduct exit exams for doctors who are completing their five years of specialist training before going on to hopefully become Haematology Consultants.

One of the hospital’s two main examiners, Dr Salim Shafeek said: “Worcestershire Royal is one of only five centres in the whole country that are able to host this specialist postgraduate exam. This year we hosted the exam for eight candidates, including two students who had travelled from abroad.

“We have had really positive feedback from our students here and our Lead Examiner, Dr Nick Pemberton is proud to host this examination in Worcestershire.”
