Pathology Day

The International Pathology Day’ on November 18th has been introduced in the UK as wonderful way to promote and present our profession to the public and the opportunity to celebrate the crucial work of pathologists and demonstrate its important role!

The ESP believes that the introduction of such an initiative in the other European countries will be a positive next step and hopes that every pathologist will be enthusiastic about taking an active part!

We would much appreciate if you could share with us, which kind of activities do you organize for the International Pathology Day!

MACEDONIA (FYROM)

International Pathology Day, the Department of Pathology at the Clinical Hospital Acibadem Sistina in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, opened its doors for the curious patients.

- Free consultations about the diagnosis of the inpatients, and the opportunity to explain them the nature of pathologists work.

- The mission was successful. The majority of patients do not know that we exist and that are the fighters behind the scene of the theater called "LIFE".

- Many of the patients were thinking that final diagnosis of their diseases were considered by the surgeons!

One comment from a patient: "As far as I can understand, you are doctor's police, aren't you" Are we?!
