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.
Pathologists in training and practicing pathologists from the developing countries are supported financially in order to attend the diagnostic courses provided by the Academy. Moreover, the Academy is supportive of selected fellows and visitors during their fellowship and observership programs in Linz.
