HistoQIP improves the preparation of histologic slides in all anatomic pathology
laboratories. In this educational program, participants will receive an evaluation specific

panel of pathologists, histotechnologists, and histotechnicians will evaluate submitted
slides for histologic technique using uniform grading criteria.
