ICPI sponsored CAP 09 meeting Jiong Zhang, MD, PhD Pathology Resident The University of Tennessee Health Science Center With the sponsorship from ICPI, I attended the 2009 annual meeting of the College of American Pathologists with a poster presentation, The unproportional number of reports on co-existing adenocarcinoma and carcinoid tumor in the urinary bladder. This is the first pathology meeting that I attended since I became a resident. The meeting was very educational. The resident forum meeting familiarized me with current issues in pathology training. The poster sessions gave me an opportunity to showcase my research work. The receptions offered chances to meet new friends and potential collaborators. The vendor show gave exposure to new tools. And most of all, the core lectures provided valuable, updated and concentrated training in many areas of pathology. I was convinced that I definitely needed to attend more meetings of the same kind. I want to thank ICPI for helping to open the doors for me to the highly educational pathology conferences.
