Head & Neck Pathology community of interest meeting: February 2024

Continuing Professional Development

On behalf of The Office of Continuous Professional Development at the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology, University of Toronto, we invite you to join us for The Community of Interest Head & Neck Pathology meeting.

All Pathologists, Pathology Fellows, and clinical scientists with an interest in Head & Neck Pathology are invited and welcome!

The goal is to create a forum where both academic and community pathologists share interesting cases and knowledge in a friendly, informal, and collegial manner.

Community of Interest Kick-Off Meeting 

We are proud to announce the launch of our Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Maintenance of Certification Program (RC MOC) accredited community of interest (COI) meeting in 2024. All pathologists and fellows with an interest in head & neck pathology (HNP) and oral pathology (OP) are welcome to join our first virtual meeting.


  • Share knowledge in HNP and OP via an evidence-based approach;
  • Discuss diagnostically challenging cases to improve quality and patient safety; 
  • Provide a platform for pathologists and clinical scientists to collaborate on research projects in HNP and OP; 
  • Build a shared HNP/OP teaching archive via digital pathology.

Cases for presentation

Please bring interesting and/or diagnostically challenging cases (deidentified) for discussion. PowerPoint slides are encouraged for shared archive. Each case presentation should be 5-10 minutes long (template). Please indicate how many cases you plan to bring. Case numbers will be assigned at the meeting.
