Trainee Education Programme

In 2015, the Society launched a structured Trainee Education Programme specifically for medical microbiology, medical virology and infectious diseases trainees which is aligned to the RCPath curricula.

The programme comprises a series of three one-day training sessions per year (in February, July and October), over a three-year period. 

Each day is an independent event with a separate programme.  The full 3-year rolling programme can be found here.


This programme is available to HIS Trainee Members. If you are not already a HIS Trainee Member, sign up for FREE HIS Trainee Membership. A small number of places are available to non-trainees. If you would like to attend and fall into this category, contact admin@his.org.uk.
