This is a friendly, informal, discussion mailing list, restricted to trainees working in Clinical Sciences. It provides a platform for trainees to share ideas, resources and opinions, ask questions and offer advice, within the trainee fold. The list is managed by the Association for Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine Trainees' Committee. Non-ACB members are welcome to join the list, provided they can confirm their trainee status. It is still recommended that trainees sign up to the regular version of the ACB Mailbase (ACB-CLIN-CHEM-GEN) as a way of keeping up to date with current issues in the world of Clinical Biochemistry and other pathology disciplines, even if they do not actively participate in the discussions.
