The Department of Pathology is pleased to announce the Inaugural Pathology Educational Symposium to be held September 10-12, 2013 in the Turner Auditorium.
We have pulled resources together from all of our sites to provide a well-rounded Continuing Education experience for all Pathology and laboratory staff in all job descriptions.
Here is the Pathology Symposium program and registration form.
This event is free to all Johns Hopkins Medicine Pathology and laboratory employees — all you need to do is fill out a registration form and submit to your Supervisor for approval. Pre-registration is required and the deadline is August 15, 2013.
This is a great opportunity to fulfill both job and certification requirements for Continuing Education. Johns Hopkins Medicine has applied for approval as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E.® Program.
We are also looking for volunteers to help with activities the days of the event. If you are interested in helping to set up, clean up, register attendees, be a session moderator, or in other ways, please let your supervisor know.
