NZ ASM 2017: Roll into Rotorua!
Friday 22 – Sunday 24 September 2017
Novotel Rotorua Lakeside
Roll into Rotorua!
The welcome to Rotorua is always a warm one. Not just because of the thermal spas to immerse our weary bodies… but with the long history of the annual North Island pathology meetings sponsored by Drs David Taylor and Ron Ensor in the 70s, 80s and 90s. This year’s Annual Scientific Meeting celebrates their history of hospitality enjoyed by many of our senior registrants when they were pathology registrars.
This year’s ASM kicks off with the IGENZ sponsored prize for the best trainee presentation (and serves as a reminder of Dr Taylor's and Ensor’s support of the trainees of yesteryear). Judge Deborah Marshall, the Chief Coroner, has been invited to deliver the AB Pearson Memorial Lecture and set the scene for pathologists’ role intersecting with the 2016 Amendment to the Coroner's Act. Dr Rajiv Patel from Ann Arbour, University of Michigan, is our lead guest speaker for Saturday’s theme day in dermatopathology and has volunteered to take a “boot camp” in soft tissue tumours on Friday. Dr Ben Tallon, Dermatologist, and Mr Richard Martin, Plastic Surgeon, are also contributing to the Dermatopathology theme Day.
Drs Amanda Charlton and Diane Kenwright have teamed up to run a very practical workshop on examination of the eye. Associate Professor Michael Buckland from Sydney will update us in neuropathology. Associate Professor Amanda Oakley will help any techno-phobes amongst us to interact with e-Dermatology… said to be as easy as online banking. Dr Annabelle Farnsworth and Dr Margaret Sage will help us keep our CPDP contribution in cervical cytology and histology up to date.
The New Zealand Society of Pathologists Annual General Meeting is due to elect a new committee and offers the prospect of instilling new blood in our national representation as a profession.
