Welcome to the newly upgraded website of the Arab Division of the International Academy of Pathology. The primary mission of the Division is to promote the medical specialty of Pathology in the Arab countries and education in Pathology by offering and sponsoring activities that serve such objectives. The website includes information on scheduled activities of the Division such as the Annual Congresses. For this year, the annual scientific congress will be held in Hurghuda in Egypt on October 23-26. For next year, it will be held in Beirut, Lebanon on October 28-31, 2020. In addition, there will be scheduled educational activities of the Arab School of Pathology. The next workshop is on cytopathology and will be in January 23-25, 2020.
This website offers the visitors the opportunity to browse the scientific material of several previous scientific congresses and workshops of the Arab School of Pathology and the Arab-British School of Pathology.
I welcome your thoughts and suggestions to enrich this website. Feel free to share with us your opinions.
