ESP Working Groups

The ESP has working groups, most of them oriented towards a subspeciality in pathology, some towards other areas of interest. The working groups are platforms for ESP members with a common interest for sharing expertise and knowledge. Main activities of the working groups are:

  • preparing proposals for congress programs
  • providing ideas for educational programs
  • represent the ESP in affiliated learned societies
    and congresses
  • serving as knowledge provider for the ESP on the
    topics they cover

Each working group is chaired by a member who is appointed by the ESP Executive Councilfor a period of 4 years, following election by the members of the working group. The ESP offers each working group an annual budget to support activities and a platform for a business meeting at the Annual European Congress.
