In the last few years the purpose of this website appears to have changed. I think this website is mostly used to get some insight into the FRCPath Microbiology examination. I would be very happy if it has helped you even a little towards the FRCPath.
I would request the users to help build this website to help fellow microbiologists who are trying to prepare for FRCPath. Please share your experience with others. How did you prepare? What resources did you use? Did you use any course? Did you find any book really helpful?
However, please refrain from posting the exam questions here as RCPath does not allow that. If you have made the similar question yourself, please include those.
If you want to post anything on this website relevant to the purpose of this website – email me: [email protected]
Please include your name and designation, if you want me to put it on the website. If you don’t want your name published, let me know as well.
This website has an album to share some pictures that I have acquired during my training in Microbiology. It has pictures of microbes, tests, and laboratory instruments. I have also included pictures taken from other websites (Open source/CC or with permission). If you are going to use any of these pictures, please consider taking permission yourself. If you need to use any of the pictures taken by me for non-commercial purpose – let me know.
This website is here to help students of Microbiology especially with FRCPath Microbiology. There Please don’t use this information for clinical use as they are not intended/written for that purpose. Management of a disease involves analysis of complicated interaction between host, pathogen and environment. It is necessary to have specialist knowledge and training to understand and manage those complex issues. Information in this website may be up to date when written, but it may not be possible to keep it up to date as new information emerges every day. Please consult your doctor if you are seeking medical advice.
RCPath has started an International Trainee support Scheme – which is a wonderful initiative and I am sure many microbiologists will be benefited from it. Please check it here –
