The Pathology Portal is a new online educational platform for pathology. Created by the Royal College of Pathologists, in collaboration with the Technology Enhanced Learning Team from NHS England, this free educational platform has allowed high quality learning materials to be available to trainee pathologists regardless of where they are based. The resources are also used by established consultants, seeking CPD opportunities or for teaching sessions, undergraduates and junior doctors considering a career in a pathology specialty, and a broad spectrum of healthcare professionals.

Learning materials include a wide range of media, including video, audio, text, data, photos and whole slide images, with annotation functions. The platform is designed with accessibility built in. Additional functions are being added all the time.

Teams of editors, including trainee editors, and international faculty have worked collaboratively to curate and develop content for students, trainees and established practitioners across all pathology specialties. Content now includes over 3700 cases, with a wide range of whole slide images, including EQA schemes, videos, data, podcasts, quizzes and assessments. Content is being added all the time, and regular review undertaken. 90% of content is 5/5 star rated by users. Content has been accessed over 42,000 times since launch in August 2022.

The Pathology Portal continues to be developed, both from an IT design perspective and with more content being added over time. If you have educational material you would like to contribute to this growing collection, the Pathology Portal team would be delighted to hear from you. Contact
