Meetings and Events

The Society conducts a Spring Annual Meeting in conjunction with the U.S.-Canadian division of the International Academy of Pathology (USCAP), attracting large numbers of registrants from both organizations. In addition, the Society holds a Fall Meeting each year at various pediatric institutions throughout North America. The Fall Meeting includes the presentation of papers and a symposium that draws upon the expertise of local faculty. An informal atmosphere allows for interchange among colleagues and an opportunity to visit the institutions of peers. Since 1978 the Society has presented the Sidney Farber Lecture which features an in depth view of current topics in developmental pathology.

The Society for Pediatric Pathology is soliciting proposals for the 2021 and 2022 SPP Fall Meeting host institutions.

The Society holds a Fall Meeting each year at various pediatric institutions throughout North America; this Meeting includes the presentation of scientific abstracts, and a symposium that draws upon the expertise of local faculty, and a separate symposium on a perinatal topic. An informal atmosphere allows for interchange among colleagues and an opportunity to visit the institutions of peers.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please read the Host Responsibilities document and submit your proposal via email to Patricia Ferchland-Bingham. If you're planning to propose a meeting, please specify which on the proposal form.
