    I was wondering about Scotland too, anyone heard about the Haematology posts? I had given up and assumed that everyone had been contacted but I know the Scotland interview dates are often a little later. If anyone has an interview, good luck

    U know in Clinical Biochemistry, as part of the training your meant to rotate through 4 different specialisms and then persue 1 single specialism at the end. What are the 4 different specialisms?
    Wow so u managed to get an interview without even looking at the job description? unbelievable...

    Hmm guess we will have to wait and see. There doesn't seem to be many people getting replies from audiology yet so i guess that means no interview letters/phone calls have been made..so there is some hope for us yet..ah well fingers crossed for us both!!!
    Hi peeps,

    I just got off the phone with someone from B'ham and asked him about the audiology short-listing. They will be finalising soon and should be contacting those successful over the next few days. Good luck.

    Common sense tells me that you should probably revise genetics and leave haematology if the interview is for genetics

    Hey all.
    I'm getting interviewed for Genetics, and I was just wondering if anyone who'd applied for this specialism at Birmingham could possibly help me out. In the Job Description for the Leeds Genetics post it specifies that the overall route is Cellular Science, however for the Birmingham post I can't see similar information. I'm just worried because Genetics is also a possible specialism for the Blood Sciences route ... but I really want to do it as part of the Cellular one (I know I'd enjoy those rotations much more!) - plus it might change some of my answers at interview. So essentially, does anyone know if Birmingham offer Genetics as part of Cellular or Blood Sciences? Sorry if it's really obvious but I just can't find it anywhere.

    Where did you apply for Genetics? The fact that you're considering revising Heamatology worries me in relation to the above, cos that's a Blood Sciences specialism

    But in answer to your question, I'm focussing all of my revision on Genetics. In terms of the other rotations, I'm just going to make sure I know very basically what they entail, and say that I'd be keen to learn more about them - after all, it's Genetics I'm being interviewed for, not the others!

    Was only asking about the specialisms because I was reading something online that turned out to be out-of-date in the end, but at the time I thought maybe there had been a new developement in the training scheme, so was having a moment of panick when I posted that comment, but thanks for your complaints and negativity, nice to know what ppl really think!

    I know in previous year the programme has been 4 years and trainees completed the MRCpath and became HPC registered at then end of 4 years. This year however things have changed because of the Modernising Scientific Careers Programme, so now its only 3 yrs. U still get state registered at the end of it, but couldn't find anything that mentioned the MRCpath.

    Yeah found that there is not that much information on that. I know that some labs had a 2 year masters + in lab training and then the 3rd year was training and prep for the MRCPath 1 and then in the grade B position they would do the part 2. But I wonder that the difference is now?
