The Laboratory Medicine Learning Academy is a digital learning platform developed by the Association in partnership with Health Education England, East of England offering a wide range of educational material. 

Current Status

The Learning Academy is currently in the pilot phase with active development of educational material and best practices taking place. During this stage the Academy is open for new user registrations whose feedback will inform the future of the platform.

Who is it for?

The two primary learner groups for the pilot phase are:

  1. Trainee clinical scientists.
  2. Trainee doctors with a specialty in chemical pathology.

Following the pilot, the focus will broaden to clinical scientists and doctors at different stages in their careers, as well as to other professions with an interest in laboratory medicine.
