The Canadian Society of Cytopathology is pleased to announce the official launch of its website which can be reached at 

All the sections were updated including  the  ‘Guidelines’ section under which you can find the 2019 version of the CSC guidelines for practice and quality assurance in cytopathology as well as CSC summaries of all the currently recommended  cytology classification systems for different organs which are endorsed by the CSC. Those summaries were designed to be practical and concise tools that could be used in your routine practice.

The member-only section is being populated by CSC educational material that has officially been recognized by the CAP-ACP and the RCPSC as accredited self-assessment programs (section 3). This material includes interactive modules of ‘Case of the month’ as well as periodic online webinars. ‘Cases of the month’ are already available for your review on the website; instructions on how to log-in into your member-only section will be sent to the members in a separate email.

The CSC executive committee is firmly committed to enhancing the CSC educational mission with this first series of educational initiatives, and the committee is open to any ideas from the members on how to further improve the society.

Becoming member of the CSC is easy, affordable and highly beneficial. You can accumulate 12 hours of RCPSC- CME credits per year with the ‘CSC cases of the month’ alone. Of note, the membership is now free for all Canadian pathology residents and fellows and for cytotechnology students.

Join us and let us work together toward promoting Cytopathology in Canada and making the CSC an interactive and vibrant platform for practice improvement, education, standardization and research.
