Pathology Update 2021


On behalf of the RCPA Board of Directors, and along with the Pathology Update Overseeing Committee, I am delighted to announce that Pathology Update 2021 will be hosted in Sydney Friday 2 July – Sunday 4 July. The conference will be presented in a hybrid format, combining an on-site component at the ICC Sydney with a virtual one through live online streaming.

After extensive consideration the RCPA Board agrees this is the best path forward. I understand that there may be some ongoing concerns regarding hosting a hybrid event but want to assure all Fellows and Trainees that the RCPA Events Team will take all necessary steps to ensure safety of delegates and speakers. All government recommendations and health and safety measures will be adhered to throughout the Pathology Update 2021.

Speakers, sponsors and exhibitors have been directly contacted and more details will be provided as they continue to finalise. I would like to thank the RCPA Events Team for working through this challenge with grace and resilience.

I am looking forward to seeing you either on-site at the ICC in Sydney or online. As RCPA President, I certainly am hopeful to get one Pathology Update under my belt!

Look after each other. Stand apart. Wash those hands. Stop the spread.

Dr Michael Dray
