The East African School of Pathology evolved through original links with the South African Division of the IAP to which the British Division has had links for many years, providing a speaker on a locally-chosen topic to go to all the University departments in South Africa. It became clear that there was a need to broaden this remit to provide education for the wider countries of East, Central and Southern Africa. These links included sponsoring trainees from these countries to go to South Africa for varying periods of further training and also developing educational programmes for biomedical scientists and medical graduates.
The BDIAP was instrumental with colleagues in the Royal College of Pathologists in establishing the autonomous College of Pathologists of East Central and Southern Africa (COPECSA) and has continued to provide speakers and support for their annual meetings.
The BDIAP is the British Division of the International Academy of Pathology. The International Academy of Pathology (IAP) is a global organisation that promotes the advancement of pathology through education by organising an international congress biennially, by organising lectures and seminars and by providing educational grants.
The IAP has numerous Divisions across the world which provide pathology education in their particular regions. Although the BDIAP is called the ‘British’ Division it is made up of members from the Republic of Ireland, the Netherlands and Belgium as well as Great Britain.
