Czech Society of Pathologists committee discussed the cytopathology subspecialty item.
We consider cytopathology diagnostics a part of basic pathology education which should remain a compulsory subject for each trainee in the framework of other skills trained – necropsy, biopsy, cytopathology diagnostics.
To produce a unified model of pathology postgraduate education comparable on a European level we would vote for defined quantitative and qualitative criteria (spectrum of activities trained- like e.g. gyne-, fluids, FNABs… ) comparable to other fields of training (autopsy, biopsy) for a unified board examination.
