Training and Trainers

Clinical Biochemists and BioMedical Scientists receive, as part of training for their their professional qualifications, some training in the laboratory diagnosis of inherited metabolic disorders more specialised training is required for staff working in MetBioNet laboratories. Staff who have an interest in IMD and who have completed their STP/BMS training programmes, can apply for advertised posts in IMD laboratories and, if successful, begin their training in house. At the same time they will be studying for further professional qualifications eg MRCPath.

Since 2004 supernumerary Higher Specialist Trainee posts have been created offering specific training in laboratory IMD for Clinical Biochemists. These are advertised nationally when available.

There are four trainers who supervise training –three Clinical, Biochemists and one Biomedical Scientist. Their current training roles involve organising workshops and meetings to meet training needs in Inherited Metabolic Disease and providing educational tools via the trainees section of the website here.
