Welcome Address

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the Macedonian Association of Pathology it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 2nd Macedonian Congress of Pathology with International Participation, which will be held in September 1-4, 2016 in Ohrid, Macedonia.
The scientific program of the Congress will be designated to provide a thorough overview and update on “hot topics” in different fields of our specialty, focusing mainly on Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Gynaecological Pathology and Cytopathology.
We are also delighted that Breast Working Group of the European Society of Pathology has accepted to carry out European School of Pathology Workshop entitled “Breast pathology in 21st century” during the Congress. The course faculty comprises three distinguished speakers: Prof. Tibor Tot, Prof. Vincenzo Eusebi, and Prof. Anna Sapino, who are experts in the field of Breast Pathology.
Therefore, the 2nd Macedonian Congress of Pathology with International Participation will be a unique opportunity to bring together in one location expert pathologists and cytopathologists coming from every part of Europe and beyond, scholars, and numerous colleagues to SHARE AND EXCHANGE THE KNOWLEDGE and the latest achievements of research and practice in different fields of Pathology.
One of the major attractions of the Congress is the town of Ohrid itself, the UNESCO protected city, the pearl of the Balkans and one of the oldest towns in Europe, which was the center of ancient civilization. It is where the first Slavic university in Europe was founded, the home town of St. Clement and St. Naum; the center of entire orthodox culture and literacy and the town by the oldest lake!
The Macedonian Association of Pathology will do everything in its power to make sure that the participation to this event will give you the opportunity to spend days of intense and constructive work with the possibility to establish new scientific collaboration and new friendly interaction. We look forward to welcoming you in Ohrid, Macedonia in September, 2016.
