Vincent Academy of Pathology (VAP) is a non-profit and non-governmental organization founded in January 2016. The main goals of the VAP are education, consultation, and research in the field of pathology.
The academy works closely with national and international pathology departments and medical faculties. Several international experts collaborate with the academy and provide diagnostic courses for practicing pathologists and pathologists in training.
One of the main purposes of the academy, located in Linz, Austria, is to organize a variety of interactive diagnostic courses for practicing pathologists as well as pathologists in training.
The courses (will) cover almost all diagnostic specialties of surgical pathology.
During the courses, on each day several examples of common and uncommon cases will be extensively discussed by an interactive approach using live-microscopy.
Currently, there are several ongoing scientific projects, particularly dealing with breast, gynecological, and thyroid tumors.
For more information, please see the list of publications.
