Medical Examiners e-learning modules 

Although primarily intended as part of the training for new Medical Examiners, the e-learning modules contain information that trainees preparing for the CHAT exam might find useful, such as when to refer a case to the coroner and how to complete a death certificate. There are 26 modules, each of which takes around 20 minutes to complete. You can do as many or as few as you wish. A certificate is issued if all 26 are completed.

Higher Specialist Scientist Training (HSST)

The National School for Healthcare Science (NSHCS) and the Manchester Academy for Healthcare Scientist Education (MAHSE) have both published Handbooks about the HSST programme for Clinical Scientists.  Please see the relevant specialty HSST pages for more information.

A joint statement from The Royal College of Pathologists, NSHCS and MAHSE has also been published outlining the informal agreements made so far with regard to the FRCPath, DClinSci and the ICS Project.
