Overview

This annual event is an update for pathologists and BMS working in Cytopathology. It will provide an overview of RCPath documents relevant to cytopathology that have been written or revised this year. The recently proposed International terminology for reporting serous fluid samples will be presented. There is also a session dedicated to cytotechnology and molecular testing.  

Trainee pathologists and BMS are encouraged to present interesting cases or audits to cover a wide range of topics in the afternoon session (20 min per presentation). Please contact natoya.sylva@rcpath.org and ashish.chandra@gstt.nhs.uk to discuss your participation and free registration to the event. 

Please note that these events have proved very popular in the past and have become fully booked in a very short space of time, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
