News Update

Dear Members of the Australasian Division of the IAP

I hope you, your family and friends are keeping well and safe in these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic and response.

I thought I would share some news and recent decisions:

The results of the recent member’s survey as to what type of meeting our Division should hold in 2021 showed 81% of respondents voting for a virtual meeting, with 30% wanting to additionally have some form of state-based gathering.

The Board of the IAP, in conjunction with the companion club convenors, will now work towards organising a purely virtual Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) on June 4-6, 2021. 

The Histology Group of Australia and Histotechnology Society of NSW have decided to postpone their conference in 2021 and so the 2021 ASM will be organised solely by our Division.

I am sure many members are aware of the passing of Dr Juan Rosai on 7 July, 2020 in Milan, Italy. He had severe Parkinsons in later life. While Dr Rosai was never a past speaker at our ASM it is well known he trained generations of pathologists. Through his publications and textbooks he influenced the practice of pathology throughout the world.  Speaking to the Aus. Division of IAP Executive, many recalling how generous Dr Rosai was in assisting young pathologists to develop their careers, and how open and entertaining he could be socially. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Membership subscriptions will be mailed out shortly. Our Division relies heavily on this subscription, and our ASM, for its income. This income supports costs related to our secretariat, ASM as well as supporting our outreach educational programs in the region. With your membership you receive access to all past IAP handouts and lectures provided by the speakers in the password protected area. You also receive a reduced registration rate for all other IAP led conferences or congresses, including USCAP, and the upcoming ESP/IAP Congress in December 2020.

Please continue to support our Division.

Our secretariat can always be contacted on info@iap-aus.org.au

Kind regards

Jane Dahlstrom
President, Australasian Division of IAP
