Pathology is fun, but it can also be hard! Every day, we are faced with challenging cases that require us to open
books, read new articles, consult our friends and colleagues, and sometimes consult the experts. To share such cases
with our membership, we will be holding our 2nd annual Rare & Interesting Case Competition at our winter FSP meeting
and we need your help!
Community pathologists, junior faculty, and trainees with a faculty mentor are all encouraged to submit their rare and interesting cases for a chance to present at the FSP 2023 Annual Meeting.
The submission window has closed. We will announce the top 5 cases soon!
