About this course

This very practical onsite course will help participants maximise the value of the practice microscope to the benefit of patients whatever the day or time. An alternative title would be ‘What you need to know for the Bank Holiday weekend!’ The course will consist of a combination of lectures and practical sessions aimed to increase confidence about what can be seen down the scope and what it means.
