Edinburgh Haematopathology Tutorial

The Edinburgh Haematopathology Tutorial is an annual two-day course designed to provide a practical approach to different topics in Haematopathology at an advanced level.

A unique feature of the Tutorial is the case orientated format.  The two-day course is divided into four sessions of 3.5 to 4 hours.  There may be an introductory lecture to each session, but the main focus of teaching centres on presentation and discussion of illustrative cases, around 40-50 in total over the two days.  Prior to the meeting, participants are able to view digitally scanned slides (H&E sections and selected immunohistochemical stains) of each case via a remote server.  During the meeting, the Tutors use these cases to highlight and discuss specific areas relevant to the topic being presented.  The atmosphere is informal, and delegates are encouraged to interact with the tutors in order to maximise the learning experience for all attendees. 

The cases remain available for viewing for several months after the close of the meeting, allowing delegates to revisit them and reinforce learning points.  This approach also has the benefit of allowing delegates to experience, first hand, real life examples of rare and educational cases. 

The course is suited to practising Haematopathologists, as well as Pathologists with an interest in Haematopathology or lymphoma diagnosis, and Pathologists in training.
