About the Event
Created in 2020 following the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Online PA Conference aims to gather and unite the international pathology community through an accessible virtual format. The inaugural event raised over $15,000 CAD for charities combating COVID-19, and gained the attention of hundreds of viewers from 16 different countries.
How will it work?
The 2021 Online Surgical Pathology CE Conference will deliver virtual lectures from experts in laboratory medicine to PAs, MLTs, pathology residents and pathologists across the world via YouTube. Prior to the conference, you will receive a link to the unlisted YouTube live stream, as well as a CE quiz and a conference feedback form. The conference will be live on Saturday June 26th, 2021 and the accompanying CE quiz and feedback form will only be available for completion on the same weekend. Depending on the speed of YouTube's video processing, a full recording of the event will be available for viewing 12-48 hours after the conclusion of the event.
What do I need to do to get CE credit?
CE credit for this conference will only be rewarded upon successful completion of a CE quiz and conference feedback form, which will be e-mailed to attendees in advance of the conference date. Successful completion of the quiz is defined as a score of 70% or above. Quiz questions will be based on information found in all lectures. The quiz will only be available for a limited time (~1 week) and the closing date will depend on how quickly the recording is uploaded to the channel.
What kind of CE credit will I receive?
The session will be accredited by the Canadian Association of Pathologists-Association canadienne des pathologistes.
Will lectures be recorded?
Yes! A recording of the entire conference will be available through the same stream URL following the conclusion of the conference.
