Belgian Society of Pathology
Welcome to the new website of the Belgian Society of Pathology!
It’s already the month of May and we are nearing the end of the academic year... Before enjoying some rest, please find some news from our Society:
Both meetings organized since the beginning of the year (Gastroenterology in February and Cytology in April) had a real success with over 80 members joining each event. At the request of several members of the working group of Digestive Pathology, we decided, with the agreement of guest speakers, to download their presentations on our website. You can now view them on www.belgian-society-pathology.eu.
The next meeting scheduled by our Society is a meeting organized by the working group of Molecular Biology and will be held in Leuven on June 25th. The topic is immunotherapy. Save the date! The subject is “hot” and perfectly fits with the future of our specialty. You will receive more information in the coming days.
For those who have answered the call for the establishment of the Gynecology working group, you will receive an invitation by Professor JC Noel shortly. The first meeting will be held on June 6th at 7:30 pm in Erasme.
Last but not least, our next Belgian week will take place in Ghent, similarly to previous years, in the charming monastery of Sint Augustijn from October 12th to 15th. The program has already been finalized and many prestigious speakers have accepted our invitation. I invite you to read Prof P. Demetter’s letter, President of the next BWP, on our website, where you can get additional information (www.belgian-society-pathology.eu). Note that, thanks to the dynamism of our organizer, Mme De Meyer, we will be allowed to park very close to the congress for a cheap price. Registration can be done on the website of our Society.
At the end of the year, on December 3rd, the last meeting of our Society will focus on renal pathology. This course will be especially dedicated to residents, but any member of the Society is of course welcome. More information about this course will be given in the coming months.
Finally, please let me remind those of you who have not yet paid their membership fees to do so as quickly as possible. These fees have remained unchanged since last year (100 euros for confirmed pathologists; 25 euros for fellows, molecular biologist or cytologists (non MD)). Visit our website for more information.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for any constructive new ideas for (y)our Society! I wish you a great summer, and look forward to seeing you very soon at the meeting on Molecular Biology, as well as at the BWP.
