The “Worldvision Cytopathology Contest” (WCC) is a new global outreach initiative of the American Society of Cytopathology (ASC)
WCC offers the opportunity to exchange scientific knowledge and goodwill in a unique cytopathology competition at the ASC’s Annual Scientific Meeting. The presenters, who would compete in the WCC, will present an interesting cytopathology case and would offer practical take-home points and/or new highlights on innovations in cytomorphology or ancillary techniques.
The contest is open to medical students, pathology residents, cytopathology fellows, cytotechnology students or a junior pathologist or cytotechnologist within one year of completion of training. The presenter is the first author of the proposal
The submitted case must not have been published before the presentation at the ASC Annual Scientific Meeting. The five finalists will be chosen from five different countries.
The winner will be determined by a panel of judges based on the scientific content, presentation style and skills, and confidence when handling questions at the end of the presentation.
The five finalists will receive waived registration at the ASC Annual Scientific Meeting. The winner will get a wall plaque and a USD 250 cash award.
The first contest will be held during the American Society of Cytopathology 67th Annual Scientific Meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, November 14-17, 2019.
