Abstract

General histopathologists are aware that oral pathologists exist and most will at some time call on their services; thus there is a need for specialists in oral pathology. Consultant histopathologists have a supportive attitude to the problem of providing the necessary general experience for oral pathology trainees, which will continue to be obtained through secondment to a histopathology department outside the trainee's main institution in most cases. Central funding would help the problem of providing cover for trainees spending a year out to complete general pathology training.
