Dental - United Kingdom

Appendix 1: Instructions to oral pathology candidates

These instructions are to be given to each candidate when they are given the histological sections for Sections A, B and D of the examination.

MRCPath Part 2 date

Section A

This section is of three hours duration. The objective is to test your ability to diagnose a range of lesions which might present to an oral pathologist. There are 20 cases with a wide spectrum of difficulty. You should provide a description of the salient features of each case and give either a diagnosis or a differential diagnosis. Where appropriate you may indicate what further tests would be required to reach a definitive diagnosis.

You are not required to write the full histopathological report you might provide for the case. This is frequently not possible on a single section. The aim is to test your ability to recognise and interpret sections. Your ability to write reports is tested in Section B of the examination.

It is important that you examine and comment upon all of the cases. This will require you to allocate your time sensibly.

MRCPath Part 2 date

Section B

This section is of three hours duration. The objective is to test your ability to report more complex cases or cases requiring additional information or tests. You are asked to provide a report which will be as near as possible to the report which you would provide for the submitting consultant.

You are provided with H&E sections as they might come to you initially. You should examine all the cases to start with and determine what additional information, special stains etc. you require. You should make a list of these and let the examiner know, preferably before the end of the first hour, what you require. These will then be provided for you, or an indication of the appropriate result will be given. You will then have the rest of the time to write your reports.

MRCPath Part 2 date

Section D

This section is of two hours duration. The objective is to test your ability to communicate the results and interpretation of pathological findings in the context of a consultation using a multiheaded microscope.

You are provided with material for two cases. You have one hour to examine the cases and prepare. You will then have one hour for the presentation of the cases.
