About us

As a group of experienced haematologists and scientists, our vision is dynamic and exciting – to make learning haematology easy and interactive.


Whether you are struggling to master blood cell morphology or learn the coagulation cascade, you can trust us to increase your confidence and skills in all aspects of haematology.


We are constantly working on developing more content, and because we are an online resource, we can be much more up-to-date than any written text.
Blood Academy is for everyone interested in haematology, from medical students, biomedical students, junior doctors, and haematologists.


If your focus is exam preparation, all our FRCPath exam content is written and reviewed by expert UK based haematologists and scientists. The team also have direct experience of those difficult FRCPath exams to guide you to success.
