What We Do

What we do

AACB activities are coordinated at a Branch level by a committee, which organises regular meetings and educational programs. These provide a venue for a variety of presentations, which include original scientific work and educational material from both local and invited speakers. The impetus for these activities comes mainly from the Branch Committee, but the calendar of Branch events also includes those which are organised on a national basis. Activities coordinated at a national level include; the Current Concepts Internet Broadcast, the annual Roman Travelling Lectures, which may be either an international or an Australian lecturer, the annual education course organised in association with the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA), and various specialist meetings and advanced workshops. These may take the form of Scientific Education Seminars organised by the Scientific and Regulatory Affairs Committee.

The Annual Scientific Conference is the highlight of the AACB meetings calendar. In addition to providing an opportunity for the presentation of original scientific work, either as oral papers or posters, there are all day Updates (QC & Management), clinical case sessions, symposia and plenary lectures, including the David Curnow Plenary Lecture. A major industry display is normally one of the attractions at the conference. The Annual General Meeting of the Association takes place during the Annual Scientific Conference.
