As histopathologists we progressively have to deal with digital images and virtual microscopy for consultations, web based external quality assurance schemes and e-learning resources. 

How challenging is this and how ready are we to adopt this on a larger scale in our practice. This day is an opportunity to put these questions to the test through practical, interactive virtual microscopy sessions in the field of gynaecological pathology. This conference will be useful for histopathology consultants as well as trainees.
