Join us for a unique three-day didactic surgical pathology meeting complemented by the sights and sounds of the African bushveld.

Bushpath 2015, the third Bushpath course to be held, is being organised by Ampath Pathology Laboratories in conjunction with the Department of Anatomical Pathology, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Pretoria. The venue, Kwa Maritane Lodge, is located in the majestic, malaria free Pilanesberg National Park, one of the world’s largest alkaline ring volcanic complexes, formed some 1300 million years ago.

Bushpath 2015 is a CPD accredited course which endeavours to provide attendees with high calibre didactic presentations by invited renowned pathologists. The course offers practical, “hands on”, educational presentations which delegates will be able to apply in their routine practice of histopathology. The lectures will be supplemented by adequate time for questions and discussion. In 2015, the course will also offer three subspeciality open consultation sessions (see programme), during which delegates can bring their own challenging cases for expert review and group discussion. Additionally, a registrars’ slide seminar (co-presented by the Departments of Anatomical Pathology, University of the Witswatersrand and University of the Free State) will serve to illustrate interesting cases in the subspecialties under discussion. These cases, as previously, will be posted on the Bushpath website as virtual slides early in 2015.

Whilst primarily an educational event, Bushpath 2015 also aims to provide delegates with an opportunity to relax and enjoy the tranquil scenery and wildlife of the African bushveld. The bush braai and congress dinner offer a further chance to experience the local culture and cuisine.

We look forward to seeing you at Bushpath 2015.
