On behalf of The Royal College of Pathologists, CBCL host and maintain e-pathpots.org.uk, an online resouce providing RSS feeds for more than 350 podcasts related to pathology museum specimens.
These podcasts have been produced to support the teaching of trainee pathologists and medical students in the UK, but are free to anyone with an interest in the pathology of disease. It is a collaboration between the Royal College of Pathologists, King’s College London and e-learning for Healthcare, an initiative of the Department of Health.
Nearly all the specimens are human material that has been collected over the last three centuries. Many were in pathology museums across London that have now closed and they are now held in the Gordon Museum, at King’s College London. All have been stored and catalogued in accordance with the UK Human Tissue Act 2004.
