Aim of this module
This module will provide the trainee with knowledge and understanding of the cellular structure and function of the major organs and the cellular pathological findings in a range of clinical disorders other than cancer. They will understand and apply a range of techniques to these clinical disorders and gain experience of interpreting results from patient investigations.
|Number||Work-based learning outcome||Title||Knowledge|
From routine requests, identify the histopathological specimens required to confirm a diagnosis in each major organ system and perform the relevant techniques to process the sample.
Perform and record details of macroscopic examination of tissue received from named major organ disease. To include:
Perform to quality standards, basic and appropriate specialised histopathological techniques as part of the systematic investigation of tissue received from named major organ disease. To include:
Perform a detailed evaluation of one new piece of equipment, method or procedure.
Perform to quality standards histopathological tests of rejection from tissue grafts and/or organ transplantation.
In discussion with a pathologist interpret in the correct clinical context the results of:
from specimens received from a range of named major organ diseases, to include:
In discussion with a pathologist, prepare and issue reports from the selected cases of named major organ disease in the context of other clinical information.

The academic parts of this module will be detailed and communicated to you by your university. Please contact them if you have questions regarding this module and its assessments. The module titles in your MSc may not be exactly identical to the work-based modules shown in the e-portfolio. Your modules will be aligned, however, to ensure that your academic and work-based learning are complimentary.
