Online Cytology for Trainee Colposcopists Course

Developed by the London Regional Cytology Training Centre (LRCTC) the course provides detailed information on:

• Laboratory organisation and sample processing, including HPV testing and “virtual” laboratory tour
• Cervical cytology screening, reporting, and management protocols
• Cytology and microscopy of normal and abnormal cell components of the cervical sample
• MDT protocols and cervical cancer audit
The course is designed to meet the requirements of the trainee’s pathology experience in their understanding of practical laboratory processes and the viewing of cytology slides. The course structure is underpinned by case presentations, Q&A sessions, and an interactive quiz

The course is of 5 hours duration and has been accepted by BSCCP as a recognised equivalent to face-to-face cytology laboratory training for both nurses and doctors training in Colposcopy.
