USCAP Welcomes you to the 2018 Annual Meeting in
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

USCAP’s Annual Meeting in Vancouver will exceed your expectations and give you a glimpse of both contemporary and vibrant pathology education at its best. The Academy encourages you to make the most of this conference, designed for a broad spectrum of learning and social opportunities from Hot Topics to social media. Don't miss the Long Course about “doing more with less”.

Augment your general registration by pre-selecting short courses, interactive microscopy sessions, evening specialty conferences and special courses in genomics and leadership. Do this up front when you register for the meeting- don’t wait to secure your place in courses that mean the most to you and which may sell out. Each interactive microscopy session can accommodate only nine learners, so be sure to review the fantastic lineup of teachers and topics. We are hoping to welcome 100 registrants for each Hot Topics session, but seating is limited.

The Academy has received 3,266 abstracts, with top research destined for platform and poster sessions. Dr. Stanley Hamilton of MD Anderson Cancer Center will deliver the Maude Abbott Lecture on “The Pathologist and Individualized Cancer Therapy,” and Dr. H. Gilbert Welch of The Dartmouth Institute will discuss “Overdiagnosis and Cancer Screening: Challenges Posed by Birds, Rabbits and Turtles” for the Timely Topics lecture. The Generation U party is a celebration of our profession and USCAP’s expression of appreciation for attending the meeting.

Vancouver is a special place. Be sure to check Canadian travel instructions on our website and make sure your passport does not expire within six months of this international conference. Please book within the USCAP Hotel Block, whenever possible, in order to support the Annual Meeting. Get ready for another unforgettable USCAP experience!
