• Cytology of solid tissues (primarily skin lesions and lymph nodes)
• Cytology of fluids (effusions, washes, synovial fluid and urinalysis)
• Recent advances in clinical pathology

Learning Objectives:
By the end of this course, you should be able to:
• Set up and use a microscope in first opinion practice
• Assess solid tissue cytology preparations for a range of common and more advanced lesions of the skin and lymphoid system
• Assess fluid cytology preparations for common and more advanced lesions
