The American Society of Cytopathology (ASC), founded in 1951, is a distinguished national professional society of physicians, cytotechnologists and scientist who are dedicated to the cytologic method of diagnostic pathology. The ASC’s diverse membership of more than 3000 individuals includes representatives from other countries who share a vision of education, research and continuous improvement in the standards and quality of patient care. The ASC is a unique society that provides a forum where physicians and cytotechnologists can interact and network with each other on both a personal and professional level.
The ASC educational activities are of prime importance to its members and to the Executive Board. The ASC recognizes the need to quickly integrate evolving basic science insights and experimental/newly available techniques into research and clinical practice, and addresses this need through its educational activities. Annual Meetings have been held since 1953. Attendees are attracted to the Annual Meeting to keep abreast of the dramatically changing cytopathology arena. Our next Annual Scientific Meeting is November 14-17, 2019 in Salt Lake City. We hope you will join us!
