Biochemistry Training Day
Featuring a shared morning schedule with Microbiology trainees, the Biochemistry Training Day kicks off with procurement sessions and interactive management scenarios. Afternoon sessions include statistics for the implementation of assays, and liver metabolism with clinical cases. Speakers include Hazel Borthwick (Consultant Clinical Biochemist at Darlington Memorial Hospital & ACB Director of Education, Training and Workforce) and Stuart McPherson (Clinical Lead of the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Liver Unit).
Microbiology Training Day
After the programme that’s shared with Biochemistry trainees in the morning, the Microbiology Training Day features sessions covering infection control and the properties of antimicrobial drugs.
