HistoQIP improves the preparation of histologic slides in all anatomic pathology
laboratories. In this educational program, participants will receive an evaluation specific
to their laboratory, an educational critique, and a participant summary that includes peer
comparison data, evaluators' comments, and performance benchmarking data. An expert
panel of pathologists, histotechnologists, and histotechnicians will evaluate submitted
slides for histologic technique using uniform grading criteria.
Participants may submit up to five stained and coverslipped glass slides (one from each category) per mailing
Includes photographs and online learning assessment questions
