Chemical Pathology has been allied to Metabolic Medicine to produce a five year higher specialist training programme requiring completion of the FRCPath following on from two years of core medical training. It is a requirement to have MRCP to complete training in this specialty. For Chemical Pathology alone, MRCP is not required and the training is shorter at 4 years in duration.
This is an area which allies clinical practice with laboratory investigations and research. The clinical areas covered include clinical nutrition, lipid abnormalities, diabetes, metabolic bone disease and adult inherited metabolic disorders.
