Congratulations to Dr. E. Filter, our previous trainee in the Area of Focused Competence Program in Cytopathology for 2013-14, who received the official Diploma status this year. Dr. Filter is the first in Canada to complete the advanced training in Cytopathology. Thank you to the team who supported and participated in this new training program. Dr. Filter now practices in Halifax and we look forward to hearing about her future successes.
A huge welcome back to Canada and our Department to Dr. C. Pocrnich who began training in our Area of Focused Competence Program in Cytopathology in July 2015. Dr. Pocrnich graduated from our Anatomical Pathology program in 2014 and completed a year-long surgical pathology fellowship at MD Anderson in Houston, Texas, from 2014-15. The team is looking forward to training our second candidate in the program and learning about some of the advanced diagnostic skills which Dr. Pocrnich acquired in the sunny south!
