Lehr, Hans-Anton; Moch, Holger; Christen, Brigitte; Safret, Alexandra; Gugger, Mathias; Rössle, Matthias; von Gunten, Michael; Lemoine, Robert; Kurt, Ann-Marie; Caduff, Rosmarie; Walter, Arnold; Singer, Gad; Luscieti, Peter; Bannwart, Fridolin; Genton, Claude Y (2012). Board examination for anatomical pathology in Switzerland: two intense days to verify professional competence. Virchows Archiv, 461(1):87-92.

Abstract

About 15 years ago, the Swiss Society of Pathology has developed and implemented a board examination in anatomical pathology. We describe herein the contents covered by this 2-day exam (autopsy pathology, cytology, histopathology, molecular pathology, and basic knowledge about mechanisms of disease) and its exact modalities, sketch a brief history of the exam, and finish with a concise discussion about the possible objectives and putative benefits weighed against the hardship that it imposes on the candidates.
