Pathology Dept Open Morning

Each year, the school can apply to participate in this event which  takes place annually in early November in the Mid Western Hospital, Limerick. The Pathology Dept Open morning takes place in conjunction with the “Labs are Vital” initiative organised through the Academy of Medical Laboratory Science in partnership with Abbott Diagnostics, and as part of National Pathology Week, Ireland.

This year we were allowed select two students to participate.

Students are shown around the various Laboratory disciplines, namely Biochemistry, Blood Transfusion, Haematology and Microbiology and they get an insight into the function and role of these areas.

This year’s event  took place on Saturday 12 November 2022
