THE BSHI DIPLOMA IN HISTOCOMPATIBILITY & IMMUNOGENETICS
The BSHI Diploma in H&I training scheme is a carefully structured, in-service training plan for Healthcare Scientists working in UK and Republic of Ireland Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratories. The aim of the Scheme is to provide a solid practical training in the skills necessary to undertake the work in a clinical H&I laboratory and to underpin this with a sound theoretical knowledge base.
Given the reduction in the number of trainees undertaking the BSHI Diploma it is necessary to reduce the number of viva sessions per year. The TDE have agreed that from 2015 onwards vivas will be held in the last week of April and the first week of October each calendar year
