Let us know. We are more than happy to extend data sources to the needs of the users we have. If you think there is something we don’t cover we would genuinely be excited to hear from you
Fancy seeing what other members make of your data? – Great! Contact us with a data set and we will see if we can incorporate it into our assessments. This is great for tricky problems you have encountered and that you think others would benefit from.
No, but we won’t deny it would help! All assessments will use data which are part and parcel of the day to day running of a medical laboratory. There shouldn’t be any data provided by pathologymu.com that would be unfamiliar. However, there will be some advanced topics presented, so although the basics may be sufficient to demonstrate baseline competency, to get the full benefit to you, and your users, the topics contained within the training courses would help significantly.
We have institutional, corporate and individual level memberships. Feel free to contact us to see which one would suit you best
