There is something for everyone at CAP-ACP 2017!


Track A: Canadian Practice-Related Topics: Includes sessions related to the intrinsic CanMEDS roles, including management, leadership, patient safety, quality assurance, professional issues, etc.

Track B: General Practice: Topics related to the general diagnostic practice. It could represent areas that affect most pathologists, such as frozen section, grossing and medical autopsies, or general aspects of a subspecialty that is practiced by most pathologists, such as gastrointestinal, gynecologic and genitourinary pathology. It also includes topics related to general pathology/lab medicine.

Track C: Subspecialty Practice: Topics related to specialties that require additional training (e.g. neuropathology, forensic pathology) or that are usually restricted to subspecialized pathologists (e.g. medical kidney diseases, ocular pathology). It also includes in-depth sessions of broad subspecialties that are beyond the scope of the generalists (e.g. vasculitides involving the GI tract).

Annual Theme: Developing Strategies for a Sustainable Career in Pathology: Plenary sessions with national and international leaders from various fields exploring the unifying theme of strategies to sustain a pathology career with ever increasing workflow demands.
