Kwa Maritane Conference Centre, Northwest Province, South Africa

Join us for a unique four-day didactic gastrointestinal pathology meeting, set in the heart of the African bushveld.

Bushpath 2024 is a didactic pathology course that includes a faculty of internationally renowned GI pathologists from across the world. The meeting 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 Conference Centre, is located in the majestic, malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park, one of the world’s largest alkaline ring volcanic complexes, measures 55,000 hectares, and was formed some 1300 million years ago.

Bushpath 2024 is an HPCSA, CPD-accredited course that endeavors to benefit trainees, qualified pathologists, as well as gastroenterologists, and any other health professionals seeking to broaden their understanding of gastrointestinal pathology. The course will offer practical, “hands-on”, didactic lectures (supplemented by any relevant ancillary testing and molecular pathology), educational case presentations, and live digital microscope sessions, covering the entire spectrum of neoplastic and non-neoplastic pathology of the tubular gut. The course will also offer ample time for questions, discussion, and interaction with the faculty. Delegates are further welcome to bring their challenging cases for expert review and group discussion during the course.

While Bushpath 2024 is primarily an educational event, it also aims to provide delegates with adequate time to take in and reflect on the educational material presented at the course. Additionally, the congress dinners and free time will provide ample opportunity for delegates to network with colleagues from across the country and further abroad.

Don’t miss this opportunity – we look forward to seeing you at Bushpath 2024!
