Lymph Node Cytology

Lymph Node Cytology – EFCS Joint Webinar of the Hellenic and the Croatian Societies of Clinical Societies, March 18, 2022

New on the ASC Education Website – Molecular Cytopathology Workshop

This online course provides organ-specific detailed molecular training, as well as general teaching on molecular assays and test selection. The course will empower cytopathologists to serve as experts in molecular cytopathology for both test selection and results interpretation.


In addition, following this course, cytopathologists can serve as an essential resource to guide oncologists, proceduralists, and surgeons on test utilization and interpretation.

Submission Deadline is Monday, May 2, 2022


The “Worldvision Cytopathology Contest” (WCC) is back and will be held during the joint meetings of the 21st International Congress of Cytology (ICC) and the ASC 70th Annual Scientific Meeting from November 15-20, 2022 at the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

WCC offers the opportunity to exchange scientific knowledge and goodwill in a unique cytopathology competition and an award to the winner at joint meeting. Those competing in the WCC will present an interesting cytopathology case and offer practical take-home points and/or new highlights on innovations in cytomorphology or ancillary techniques. 

The contest is open to:

• medical students
• pathology residents
• cytopathology fellows
• cytotechnology students
• junior pathologists or cytotechnologists within one year of completion of training

Deadline for application is May 16, 2022.
