Hall 4 Programme

In Hall 4 we are offering three full days of free seminars on all aspects of registration, training and professional qualifications and presentations on safety and risk, molecular pathology and genomics, and laboratory informatics.

Essential material for trainers, trainees and anyone undertaking a professional qualification

For anyone considering becoming a Registration Training Portfolio verifier you'll also find a registration training workshop, which will count toward the requirement you will need, or it can simply be used as a refresher opportunity for anyone involved in registration training.

These smaller group seminars are complementary to the main lecture programme and their aim is to inform and encourage discussion and to provide the opportunity to hear about new, novel or challenging subjects that fall outside the main discipline specific lecture programmes.

The smaller, more informal nature of these sessions enables delegates to discuss and debate the issues with the presenters and to exchange their ideas and experiences.
