The Belgian Society of Pathology is an independent and non-profit medical society led by expert volunteers. We unite pathologists, residents, cytotechnologists, molecular biologists and other scientists involved in Pathology
To lead a global Community of physicians, scientists and allied professionals through education and research with the goal to promote the understanding of disease.
The Belgian Society of Pathology was founded in 2012 by the Belgian society of Anatomic Pathology, the Belgian Society of Clinical Cytology and the Digestive Pathology Club.
The BSP groups pathologists from Belgium and neighboring countries (The Netherlands and Luxemburg), residents, cytotechnologists and molecular biologists involved in Pathology.
The Society host a major conference once a year “The Belgian week of Pathology” with outstanding speakers. Several meetings and courses are organized during the year with a special attention for residents.This network allows us to reach out to the global pathology community. Diversity is our strength.
The society welcomes also different workgroups around specific pathologies (breast pathology, uropathology, gynecologic pathology, etc.) advising good clinical practice, publishing recommendations and guidelines and promoting scientific work.
