Pathology: Associations and Societies
The purpose of this course is to provide the student with a comprehensive understanding of the human body at both the gross anatomical and microanatomical levels. The basic concepts of structure as related to function are described in lectures and small g
Today the Association holds true to the aims set out by its founder, Dr S.C. Dyke:
To improve the conditions of pathology practice and improve the status of clinical pathologists.
To secure clinical pathologists as being equal to other consultants
To encourage and assist medical schools and post-graduate education so that suitably trained doctors could assume charge of hospital laboratories throughout the United Kingdom.
To establish where members could exchange views on work, research etc.
The European Society of Pathology is a leading force in European pathology.
As a learned society, the ESP has as its primary aim the promotion of high quality diagnostic practice, applied and translational research and under- and postgraduate education in the field of human pathology.
This is achieved through its congresses, its journal Virchows Archiv, its European School of Pathology which organises a variety of postgraduate courses and its quality assurance projects in diagnostic molecular pathology.
The ESP interacts with national pathology societies in Europe and has developed close collaboration with UEMS (Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes) and EAPCP (European Association of Pathology Chairs and Programme Directors).
The ESP headquarters in Brussels serve as hub for European Pathology organisations.
The Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland, is dedicated to enhancing high quality research and education in pathology in its broadest sense. The Society hosts a major conference twice a year with outstanding speakers on a range of topics from basic molecular pathology to diagnostic practice
and provides a forum for investigators across the world to present their research. The Society also has a generous range of grants that it awards to its members including PhD studentships, scholarships and travel support.
Membership is open to all individuals involved in pathological research and education and includes subscription to our Society Journal, The Journal of Pathology which remains one of the foremost and highest impact journals in the field. This website provides all the latest news on Society activities and we welcome you to join us as the Society continues to grow.
The American Phytopathological Society (APS) is the premier society dedicated to high-quality, innovative plant pathology research. For more than a century, members of APS have been making and sharing significant breakthroughs, both for the science and society. APS is driven by a distinctive community of scientists
, whose energy and commitment ensure the global advancement of this critical science. APS members represent a broad range of specialties, from pushing frontiers in the accuracy and speed of field diagnosis, to increasing our understanding of plant pathology through laboratory research. Members come from academia, government, industry, and private practice. The diversity of the members and science makes the society pertinent to a multitude of research areas, while the international involvement ensures that the latest innovations from around the world are available to all.
The Pakistan Association of Pathologists was founded in late 1975 by 28 pathologists. Now its hundreds of members are spread allover Pakistan comprising of Private pathologists, Pathologists from Government Hospitals, Private and Government Medical Colleges and Pathologists from the Armed Forces of Pakistan.
The Digital Pathology Association (DPA) is a not-for-profit organization comprised of pathologists, scientists, technologists and representatives from the industry that focus on facilitating education and awareness of digital pathology applications in healthcare and life sciences.
The Canadian Association of Pathologists (Association canadienne des pathologistes), a voluntary professional organization, advances the interests of our profession and promotes high quality standards for patient care by providing national leadership and promoting excellence in pathology and laboratory medicine practice, education and research.
The society was initiated by a group of renal pathologists (Jay Bernstein, P. Burkholder, J. Churg, R. Cotran, F. Cuppage, D. Jones, M. Kashgarian, J. Kissane, K. Mostofi, and G. Striker), acting in large measure at the instigation of Conrad Pirani who served as acting chairman.
They met on November 20, 1977, during the American Society of Nephrology meeting at the Washington Hilton Hotel, to consider the creation of a renal pathologists' organization. Fred Silva assisted as secretary. The Renal Pathology Club was then born which organized conferences for over 10 years at the annual American Society of Nephrology (ASN), the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), and the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) meetings.
Some years later, a steering committee was appointed to oversee the transition from club to society. Jay Bernstein, Frank A. Carone, Arthur H. Cohen, Robert B. Colvin, Ramzi Cotran, M.D., Vivette D'Agati, Gloria R. Gallo, Gary S. Hill, J. Charles Jennette, Michael Kashgarian, Vivian Pinn-Wiggins, H.G. Rennke, Seymour Rosen, Benjamin Spargo, Liliane M. Striker, and M.A. Venkatachalam, participated in the transition and the Renal Pathology Club became the Renal Pathology Society in March, 1993. Members of the Renal Pathology Club automatically became charter members of the new Renal Pathology Society.
