Molecular Pathology Competencies OMPRN 2017
Thu, 29 Aug 2019
The advent of competency-based medical education in Canadian residency programs (the Royal College’s Competence by Design initiative) seems an opportune time to standardize the more robust training in molecular pathology and bioinformatics that is crucial to the future of all the pathology specialties. Some initiatives have already been taken by the Royal College, in cooperation with other bodies, such as the Ontario Molecular Pathology Research Network (OMPRN) and CAP-ACP, to address gaps in molecular pathology training. This document , entitled "Draft Molecular Pathology Training Guidelines” will be very useful to educators and CAP-ACP members.

International Pathology Day November 13!
Thu, 29 Aug 2019
International Pathology Day (IPD) was established by the Royal College in 2014 in partnership with the CAP-ACP and a number of pathology and laboratory medicine institutions across the globe to recognise and celebrate the contribution and important role played by pathology and laboratory medicine services in addressing global health challenges and improving the health outcomes of communities around the world.  Pathology is critical for the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of many of the leading causes of disease, providing over 70% of all the diagnoses which doctors use as the basis of their clinical decisions, whilst making up only 2% of global spending on healthcare. Without pathology, there is no medicine!
