The 39th Annual Meeting of the BAOP (British Association of Ophthalmic Pathology) - 4 CPD points approved by RCPath

The British Association of Ophthalmic Pathology (BAOP) is a group of histopathologists, ophthalmologists and other professionals who have a common interest in pathology of eye disease.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the previously organised in-person BAOP meeting was cancelled. We have decided to host a one day meeting this year - virtually - via Zoom, in order to provide a platform for the delegates to participate in the educational meeting. This is completely FREE of CHARGE. I hope this will encourage more delegates to join us in this meeting.

Meeting is on Friday 23rd April 2021. Link to registration at bottom of this page.

Formed in 1982, the association acts both as a forum for clinical education and discussion and to represent eye pathology as a specialist area of practice.

The annual meeting of BAOP consists of a series of clinico-pathological case presentations (both human and veterinary), scientific research presentations, National Ophthalmic Pathology EQA discussion and the business meeting of BAOP.

The meeting is well attended by delegates from both UK and further afield. The delegates usually include ophthalmic pathologists, neuropathologists, pathologists with an interest in ophthalmic pathology, veterinary pathologists, ophthalmologists, trainee pathologists/ ophthalmologists, histopathology laboratory staff, research fellows and medical students with an interest in ophthalmic pathology. Delegates are encouraged to present interesting cases and their relevant research at the meeting. Trainees and students (including trainee pathologists/ophthalmologists, research fellows, MSc/PhD students and medical students) who presented at the meeting will be considered for the ‘Jean Campbell award’ for the best trainee presentation.
