Lynch Syndrome online training for pathologists

This Lynch syndrome online training for pathologists was created by Dr Nicholas West, Associate Professor of Pathology and Honorary Consultant in Gastrointestinal Pathology, University of Leeds. It covers the modules required for pathologists.

Please note that the training videos cover both the colorectal cancer and endometrial cancer pathways. For this reason, it is recommended that you take your cancer pathway specific modules and tests only.

The training involves watching two short videos which cover all the different stages of the Lynch syndrome pathway, and then completing the online questionnaires to ensure that you have understood correctly the processes and procedures for testing. In addition, at the end of the page you will find a range of supporting documents to help understand this pathway.


The National Lynch syndrome programme is now available on the NHS Learning Hub. In order to access the material you will need a Learning Hub account. If you do not have an account you will be able to create one at the link below as well as access the programme.

If you would like to find out more about Lynch syndrome or the genetic counselling process, we recommend you continue with the online training for the colorectal or endometrial MDTs:
