The material was well explained and there were lots of very useful examples.

I enjoyed it and enjoyed being able to do at my own pace. The content of the course is really good.

What will I learn on this course?

Session 1

Smears, stains and the microscope

  • How to prepare and maximise the quality of smears for cytological examination
  • A systematic approach to examination of cytology smears
  • Develop a logical step by step approach for examining cytology smears

Session 2

Cytological findings and diagnoses

  • How to identify inflammatory cells and differentiate bacterial infection from other types of infection
  • How to identify the cells and recognise the findings that are indicative of common non-neoplastic skin lesions such as follicular/epidermal cysts
  • How to identify the origin of tissue cells and diagnose skin neoplasms
  • Recognise the morphological appearance of benign and malignant neoplastic cells

Session 3

From the class to the in-clinic lab

  • During this session we will put in use the knowledge acquired from the previous two sessions by presenting and discussing clinical cases.
