Clinical placements

We offer a small number of laboratory-based placements each year. These are offered to under-graduate students who are in year 2 of their BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree. The student opts to take a sandwich year, or the placement may form part of an integrated applied degree where the degree and registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) become coterminous. Further information can be obtained from our Pathology Training Co-ordinator:
