International Pathology Day 2020

The College launched International Pathology Day in 2014, together with pathology and laboratory medicine institutions worldwide. It has since become a valuable platform where the contribution and achievements of pathology and laboratory medicine services that work to address global health challenges and improve the health outcomes of global communities is recognised and celebrated.

In the best interests of the international community we have decided to bring everyone together for a virtual conference. Organised once again in collaboration with the Pathologist magazine and sponsor Sonic Healthcare UK

As the world continues to reel from the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s International Pathology Day will explore infection.
Focusing on the methods and models that have been developed to manage infection around the world, the day will also explore how the global pathology community has managed infectious outbreaks in the past and how it is dealing with the current outbreak of COVID-19.

Themes explored on the day will include the social, economic, cultural, technical, and biological factors that impact on controlling the spread of an infection, the role of testing and the search to discover a vaccine and treatments.

The roundtable, on the topic of why international knowledge sharing is a winner will explore these themes and offer new perspectives. Following its hugely successful debut we are also excited to announce that the poster competition sponsored by Sonic Healthcare UK will be returning.
