Pathology Horizons 2020

Pathology Horizons is an annual and open CPD conference organised by Cirdan to discuss what developments lie ahead in Pathology and what we can do to prepare or take advantage of these. 

This year the conference will take place from 10 – 12 September in the beautiful Slieve Donard Resort & Spa located in the seaside town of Newcastle in N. Ireland. Nestling at the foot of the Mountains of Mourne, the Resort stands in six acres of immaculate private grounds. A golden strand of beach borders one side while the mighty Royal County Down Golf Links frames the other.  Located just 30 miles south of Belfast and 90 miles north of Dublin, it is a fantastic location to mix pleasure and business at this year’s Pathology Horizons event.
