Advanced Cellular Pathology


This module will explore histopathology, cytopathology and molecular pathology to an advanced level in clinical diagnostic practise. There will be a particular focus on diagnosis, prognosis and treatment response prediction through morphology, proteomic and genomic testing. 

Learning Outcomes

  1. Discuss the pathological basis of disease and the role of histopathology, cytopathology and molecular pathology in the detection and diagnosis of disease as part of the clinical investigation of patients

  2. Critically evaluate the application of a range of diagnostic techniques in the investigation of disease at a molecular and cellular level in the cellular pathology laboratory

  3. Critically evaluate current and emerging practise in cellular pathology

  4. Evaluate the evidence for and current best practice in the management of a range of tumour types and where this aligns with national cancer management strategies

  5. Research, evaluate, and discuss key issues within cellular pathology and communicate the results in a cogent and balanced manner
