"I'm a Histopathology trainee in my fourth year of training in the East of England. I have really enjoyed my training experience so far. Histopathology is a fun and challenging speciality with many different areas to specialise in. It has a great work life balance with the capacity to get involved in teaching, research and management. My daily work consists of diagnosing conditions under the microscope which provides the definitive answer so that patients can be managed appropriately."
