    THE Association for Clinical Genomic Science (ACGS) and the Exeter Molecular Genetics Laboratory are pleased to announce that the next Genetic Technologist Training Day will be held on Monday 11th March 2019 in Cardiff.

    The meeting is free to attend. Registration is open to 2 people per laboratory in the first instance. If you would like to attend, please complete the registration form and return by the 31st January 2019 to: anna-marie.johnson1@nhs.net

    The venue is close to the Cardiff city centre and therefore easily accessible from Cardiff Central station by either public transport or taxi. There is plenty of parking available in Cardiff Bay too if you decide to drive.

    We are looking for volunteers to present on technical topics, technical developments, challenges, lab reorganisations or anything else that can be educational to wider community. Please email Anna-Marie with the topic you would like to present on as soon as you can. There will be 15mins allocated for each presentation.

    If there are spare places available, it will get opened up to more people. This is to ensure fair representation from labs across the UK. Make sure you tell us which topic you would like to discuss in an afternoon focus group so that everyone can benefit from the day as much as possible.

    If you have any questions or need any further information, please contact Anne-Marie by email (see above).

  • FRCPath Study Group 2019

    Posted from: ACGS

    The FRCPath Pt 1 study group is continuing again in preparation for Autumn 2019 exams in Genetics and will follow the virtual format as in previous years. This will consist of an initial and a final meeting with the rest of the course completed online with the support of facilitators.

     The first meeting is really aimed to introduce you to the exam and to discuss what you want from it. Whilst we will use the structure from previous years as a guide we need your input to mould this year's study group into what you need. It is really important you highlight any areas which you think are not relevant, and also to add anything new, and also if anyone has feedback for improvement from previous years to let us know.

    The initial meeting is being planned to be held at the Bristol Genetics laboratory during w/b 7th January (but avoiding 10th Jan due to HSST events).  If you wish to participate in the course please complete the accompanying form and return to the email address provided. Details of the first meeting and all relevant materials will be distributed once all the details finalised.

    If you are interested in facilitating the sessions, please contact Elizabeth.Watson@nhs.net with your details and areas of expertise so we can match you as best as possible to one of the seven sessions.
