STP Cancer Genomics – Planned new specialty for 2018

Last updated: 7th August 2019

A new specialty planned for 2018 is the STP pathway in Cancer Genomics, which will form part of the Genomic Sciences theme. The Clinical Scientist role is focussed on delivery of diagnostic services for patients who have a possible or confirmed diagnosis of cancer. An approved description of what the specialty will contain is available here.

Workplaces should express interest in hosting a trainee with their local Healthcare Science Leads and recruitment for trainees will take place as part of the national recruitment process in the new year to start the programme in the academic year 2018/2019.
