The Edinburgh Haematopathology Tutorial is an annual two-day course designed to provide a practical approach to different topics in Haematopathology at an advanced level. A unique feature of the Tutorial is the case orientated format, teaching being centred around presentation and discussion of illustrative cases, around 40-50 in total over the two days.

This year’s tutorial aims to provide an update in various areas of Haematopathology as chosen by our guest tutors. Topics to be addressed include:
T-cell and NK-cell lymphomas and lymphoproliferations
Cutaneous lymphomas and lymphoproliferations of T-cell and NK-cell type
Benign tumour like lesions with B- and T-cell predominance
EBV-associated B-cell proliferations
A unique feature of the Edinburgh Haematopathology Tutorial is the case orientated format. The two-day course is divided into sessions of up to three hours. There may be an introductory lecture to each session, but the main focus of teaching will centre on presentation and discussion of illustrative cases, around 40-50 in total over the two days. Prior to the meeting, participants will be able to view digitally scanned slides (H&E sections and selected Immunohistochemical stains) of each case via a remote server. During the meeting, the Tutors will use these cases to highlight and discuss specific areas relevant to the topic being presented.
The atmosphere is informal, and delegates are encouraged to interact with the tutors in order to maximize the learning experience for all attendees. At the conclusion of the course, participants will have been updated on a broad range of problem areas pertinent to extranodal lymphoma and be equipped with a practical approach to resolving difficult diagnostic dilemmas as they are encountered in routine practice.
Our guest tutors are all internationally renowned in their field and this year include:
Leticia Quintanilla-Fend, University of Tübingen, Germany
Amy Duffield, Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, USA
Thomas Tousseyn, KU Leuven, Belgium
Electronic copies of all case discussions and lectures will be made available after the course. The cases will also remain available for viewing for two months after the close of the meeting, allowing delegates to revisit them and reinforce learning points at their convenience. The course is suited to practicing Haematopathologists, as well as Pathologists with an interest in Haematopathology or lymphoma diagnosis and Pathologists in training.
