Training, development and registration (histopathology)

You'll need to successfully train and then register to practise as a clinical scientist in histopathology.


If you secure a place on the NHS Scientist Training Programme (STP) you’ll be employed on a fixed-term, salaried training post and will study towards a Master's degree qualification in clinical science (cellular sciences). You will qualify as a clinical scientist.

Programmes are often supported by the development of workplace-based assessment tools, assessment of equivalent learning and the development of academic careers.
