This website started its journey almost 10 years back as a repository of materials that I used to prepare for my FRCPath examination. That purpose is not there anymore. However, if you are preparing for this particular examination you may have realised that there is not enough guidance on the web to help you prepare. So now our purpose is to help the trainees to prepare. 

Welcome to the microregistrar.com
