Year 2010

Volume 19, Issue 1

Message from the President:

I have been asked a few times about my plan since I took office last November. Though I have some ideas about the work, I must admit I have little time to set up any schedule. Perhaps this gives me a chance to write up some thoughts.

Over the past few years since I joined the College Council, there were major changes. We have a full-time College Secretary who helps to tidy up bits and pieces in our Chamber, including taking Council minutes, managing daily operation of the College, and assistance in CME/CPD. At present, Adrienne plays a crucial role in communication among Fellows, Councillors and the Academy. We discussed and implemented changes in standardizing score in examinations, examination formats in specialties, training requirements (such as in case of long sick leave, autopsy numbers), appeal mechanism, etc. All of these require the work of a team, not individuals, who share the view to better the College and our profession.

Message from the President:

On behalf of the College, I hosted the International Liaison Committee of Presidents (ILCP) Meeting 2010 on 2 & 3 September in Hong Kong. This is an annual event hosted by one of the member colleges and societies in their respective nations. The member colleges and societies of ILCP include the Royal College of Pathologists (U.K.), Association of Clinical Pathologists (U.K.), the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia, Faculty of Pathology of the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland, College of American Pathologists, and the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. The Canadian Association of Pathologists became a new member last year, but its President was unable to attend this meeting.

The purpose of the meeting is for Presidents of Colleges and Societies of Pathologists to meet face to face to discuss on various issues of our professional practice in developed countries, including problems encountered. It is hoped that work on joint statements, projects and high-level strategy can be formulated if necessary.
