The FSP’s 47th Annual Pathology Conference: Updates and Practical Approaches in Pathology will be held for the first-time ever as a virtual conference on February 12-14, 2021. Going virtual will allow us to educate our members as well as the larger pathology community on the latest scientific developments in pathology, while ensuring our attendees, faculty members, and supporters are staying safe and healthy from the comfort of their homes. The conference will provide pathologists with education surrounding a wide range of topics and the opportunity to learn and adopt new strategies and tools to aid in the diagnosis and analysis of diseases. Specific topics being covered include pearls and pitfalls in gastrointestinal pathology, breast pathology and genitourinary pathology.

The Florida Society of Pathologists (FSP) Poster Review Committee invites the submission of posters for inclusion in the Virtual Poster Hall during the FSP’s Annual Pathology Conference taking place virtually on February 12-14, 2021. The purpose of the FSP Poster Hall is to stimulate research, provide a venue to share innovative and effective educational programs, showcase unique research projects, and to encourage networking among pathologists. All pathologists are invited to submit case-based posters or research-based posters for inclusion in the Virtual Poster Hall. Residents and fellows are eligible to compete in the FSP Poster Competition.
Poster Submission Deadline
January 8, 2021
5:00 pm EST
Residents and fellows who are enrolled in a full-time approved training program in pathology or sub-specialty of pathology are invited to submit and are eligible to participate in the FSP Poster Competition.
Poster Competition Presentation Process and Awards
Posters will be pre-judged and selected by FSP judges based on quality, innovation, approach/design, and visuals. Posters will be judged twice and are subject to an additional preliminary review to determine eligibility. If judges deem that changes need to be made for posters to be eligible for presentation, lead authors will be contacted by email. The first judging will be done before the conference, and it will be a blind review. The second judging will be conducted during the poster presentation during the virtual conference in the FSP Poster Hall. The scores from both judging sessions will be combined to determine the winners. The first-place winner will receive $500, the second-place winner will receive $250, and the third-place winner will receive $150. To be considered for the competition, you must be a resident or fellow and you must submit your poster by the submission deadline.
Winners of the Poster Competition will be announced, and prizes will be awarded during the FSP Business Meeting on Sunday, February 14, 2021.
