Mission Statement of the ESP and of the ESP Education Committee:

The European Society of Pathology (ESP) intends to play a leading role in postgraduate and continued education in pathology in Europe.

The ESP intends to do this through:

  • Its Annual European Congresses of Pathology with a strong emphasis on didactic content (short courses, slide seminars)
  • EScoP courses in a small group, interactive format - practice oriented, but anticipating the routine use of new technology in a diagnostic setting, which implies updates on molecular and cell pathology
  • Accrediting and advertising courses organised by national societies
  • Interfacing with CME granting bodies of the European national certification boards and UEMS
