5th Annual National Pathology Conference 2014 Sydney

  • Conference Call
  • The 5th Annual National Pathol­ogy Con­fer­ence will be held on Sep­tem­ber 8 – 9, 2014 in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia at the Syd­ney Har­bour Mar­riott Hotel.

    Now in it’s 5th year, the annual National Pathol­ogy Forum shares recent devel­op­ments in pathol­ogy and how these are con­tribut­ing to improve Aus­tralian health.

    The pro­gram will fea­ture case stud­ies on inno­v­a­tive test­ing meth­ods in the fields of genet­ics, biobank­ing and PoCT for exam­ple. The highly inter­ac­tive nature of the National Pathol­ogy Forum will allow del­e­gates to net­work with each other and con­verse with the speak­ers ask­ing ques­tions as part of debates, indus­try round­ta­bles, short work­shops and panel dis­cus­sions.

    Join expert speak­ers from Gov­ern­ment, state-​based Depart­ments of Health, pub­lic and pri­vate pathol­ogy, uni­ver­si­ties and hos­pi­tals across Aus­tralia to hear a vast num­ber of the lat­est indus­try perspectives.
