Breast pathology is a rapidly developing discipline having crucial role in diagnosing breast diseases and in providing prognostic and predictive parameters that guide treatment decision.

This unique two-day course aims to improve provision of routine breast pathology service in the UK. It is slanted towards practical diagnostic histopathology of breast disease with special emphasis on areas which pose diagnostic difficulties. The topics are chosen based on analysis of data from the Nottingham national referral centre and EQA performance and on personal communication with reporting pathologists in the UK.

The course includes talks on specific topics, given by eminent breast pathologists and a large collection of microscope slides of common and problematic conditions as well as unusual breast lesions with illustrated discussions.
