The subgroups and the BSP elaborated the following events, which are open for our members:



  • Saturday 21 April | Cytology working group session in Bonheiden (Imeldahospital). The session is especially destined for cytotechnicians and residents, but is open for all members. Quality assurance will be a prominent subject. Some HPV negative cases will be also presented. A precise program will follow shortly.

We also programmed this year a Course on liver pathology and  a Molecular Pathology workshop second edition.


Belgian Week of Pathology

Pieter Demetter decided to hand over the reins of the Belgian Week op Pathology. We warmly thank him for his extraordinary work he has done during several years.

The next Belgian week of Pathology will be organized under the presidency of Koen Van de Vijver (Ghent). 


Other Activities

  • 10th June, Madrid. There is an urgent last call to sit for the QUATE exam to be held during the ECC. Details of the exam can be found on the EFCS website www.efcs.eu/index.php/quate-exam


Thank you for your continued membership and your involvement in the BSP.

We especially invite the members to actively participate in the different working groups of the Society. There are important tasks awaiting in the different working groups, to sustain the scientific basis of the pathological practice by formulating guidelines, by supporting the formation of the young residents and by activities for continuous quality assurance.

We decided to redesign the website with a fresh look and a user-friendly navigation.

Looking forward to meet you at each of the upcoming activities of our Society.


Sincerely Yours,

Martin LAMMENS, President
