About the Course

We are delighted to announce the 8th SGH Breast Pathology Course (3-4 November 2017) which will be held in conjunction with the Asian Breast Diseases Association (ABDA) Annual Scientific Meeting (4-5 November 2017).

Our 2 day breast pathology fiesta promises an exciting array of breast pathology cases which can be enjoyed through conventional light microscopy as well as via digital microscopy. Lectures incorporate common and recurrent diagnostic challenges in breast pathology practice.

This year, we are honoured to have the Nottingham breast pathology faculty (Professor Ian Ellis and Professor Emad Rakha) joining us. We are also very pleased to welcome Dr Kimberly Allison from Stanford University as faculty.
