The European Society of Pathology (ESP), in close collaboration with the UEMS Board of Pathology, is happy to announce the 2022 Pathology Progress Test (PPT). 
From 24th of November until 12th of December 2022 you are invited to take the PPT, which is primarily intended for trainees, but any pathologist curious to submit their knowledge base to the test is welcome to participate. The test consists of 120 questions in a multiple-choice question (MCQ) format. The questions are partly only text, partly still image-based, and partly virtual slide-based. The targeted level is that of a trainee at the end of a residency programme. The test comprises questions with a purely diagnostic orientation, but also molecular pathology and mechanism of disease-oriented questions. After finishing the test participants will immediately receive a test score. The test is purely formative: a tool for self-assessment. The results are kept anonymous. 

Those taking the test will have access to participate from 24th November to 12th December 2022. The best way to do the test is in one run, which will take about 3 hours, but can also be taken in stages.
ESP members in good standing are invited to register via the ESP Education Platform of the ESP website. Access to the Platform is done by using the ESP login credentials. After successful login, please access the ESP Education Platform and click the Registration Tab. In the same tab, the PPT will be available for the announced dates. 
Registration will be for free, but is mandatory.

ESP members in good standing will receive a certificate of participation, awarded with CME credits and will have access to the correct answers. Information about this will be communicated to those who complete and submit all 120 questions.

Those who are not ESP members in good standing can also access the PPT via this LINK. The link may be shared with any Pathologist interested in the PPT. 
Colleagues that are not ESP members in good standing will not have access to CME credits or the correct answers.
