The first post doctoral course in Pediatric Pathology (PDCC) under the aegis of Indian collage of pathologists (ICP) was started in our Department in year 2013 and we induct one candidate per year for this one year intensive training programme. We have the state of art 'Advance pediatric center' to which patients flock from all over India and this provides ample pediatric cases to us. For this conference we have invited many distinguished pediatric pathologists from USA and India. The invited faculty members have agreed to share their experiences as a voluntary contribution on their part.
