The aim of the Continuing Education Symposium series is to provide an interactive environment to enhance your knowledge in the field of toxicological, discovery, clinical, experimental or veterinary pathology.  The Continuing Education Symposiums are designed to refresh participants’ knowledge and understanding of core principles, as well as discuss any important recent advances.


This Continuing Education Symposium will provide an intermediate level overview on the Liver covering both theory and practical classes including INHAND, rodent and non-rodent liver pathology and risk assessment as well as reviewing challenges with current research models.


The BSTP are delighted to announce that experts such as Jerrold M Ward, Thomas Nolte, Begonya Garcia, Malcolm Alison and Miryam Mueller have agreed to speak at this symposium. 


The format will include presentations, case histories and active participation of delegates. The Continuing Education Symposium will be of 3 days duration and the programme will be arranged such that each individual day can be attended as stand-alone CPD if desired.


The BSTP are able to offer one free place on this Continuing Education Symposium (CES) for individuals working within an “early career” environment, for example, stipendiary students/researchers studying/working within a relevant scientific field, veterinary pathology residents and professional trainee pathologists working towards a professional qualification or gaining more experience within the field of toxicological pathology – more information is available on the website.  Applications are welcome from interested members and non-members of the BSTP and the awarding of the place will be at the discretion of the BSTP Council.


There are so many great ways to learn and increase your CPD portfolio these days:  You can read books, listen to podcasts, watch how-to videos, attend webinars, take part in ‘in-house’ training, just to name a few. Why bother with the time and expense of attending this BSTP event?


Here are 7 reasons why you should attend this symposium organised by the BSTP:


  • Meet the speakers face to face and benefit from their experience
  • Networking opportunities with your peers
  • Learning in a new space to increase your knowledge on the subject matter
  • Break out of your comfort zone to learn something new
  • Invest in yourself to improve your employment opportunities
  • Increased knowledge will help when sitting examinations
  • The topics covered in these events are unlikely to be repeated until at least 2025!
