About the Course

We are delighted to announce the 9th SGH Breast Pathology Course (9-11 November 2018).

Our 2 1/2-day breast pathology fiesta promises an exciting array of breast pathology cases which can be enjoyed through conventional light microscopy as well as via digital microscopy. Lectures incorporate common and recurrent diagnostic challenges in breast pathology practice.

This year, we are honoured to have Dr Stuart J. Schnitt from USA and Dr Elena Provenzano from UK. Dr Schnitt is a pathologist in Boston, Massachusetts and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area, including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women's Hospital. He is globally renowned as a breast pathologist and outstanding educator. Dr Elena Provenzano is Lead Breast Histopathologist for the Cambridge Breast Unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital. Her Key interests are in the molecular taxonomy of breast cancer and assessment of tumour response to neoadjuvant therapy.

Together with local and regional faculty offering insights and expertise, this 9th SGH Breast Pathology Course will update you on the latest in breast pathology amid a congenial milieu of camaraderie and collegial interactions.
