1 Competency Portfolio for the Diploma in Cytopathology Guide for Working Group/AFC-Diploma Committee, Educators, and Candidates 2013 EDITIAL REVISION 2015 VERSION 1.2 This portfolio applies to those who begin training on or after July 1 st, DEFINITION Cytopathology is that area of enhanced competence within Anatomical Pathology or General Pathology concerned with diagnosis through the morphological evaluation of cells and/or microfragments of tissue reflecting the manifestations of disease. Cytopathology testing is carried out on cellular material obtained from a variety of body sites which is analyzed for pathological conditions. Cytopathological testing is done for both diagnostic and screening purposes and plays a very important role in patient management under both circumstances. GOALS Upon completion of training, a diplomate is expected to function as a competent specialist in Cytopathology, capable of an enhanced practice in this area of focused competence (AFC), within the scope of Anatomical Pathology or General Pathology. The AFC trainee must acquire a working knowledge of the theoretical basis of the discipline, including its foundations in the sciences and research. The discipline of Cytopathology includes responsibility for interpretation of gynecological and non-gynecological cytological specimens, management of the cytopathology laboratory, performance of fine needle aspirates (FNAs) of superficial body sites, selection and interpretation of ancillary cytological studies for diagnosis and prognosis, advancement of the discipline of Cytopathology through scholarship, and engagement of governments, other physicians, and other health professions in the promotion of the role of Cytopathology in patient wellness and care. Note: All markers must be signed off by prior to adding to portfolio. Note: All submitted cases or clinical material must be de-identified to preserve patient privacy. This requires the removal of key identifiers, including but not limited to name, birth date, date of consultation, and location (e.g., hospital/clinic, city). In some cases, even without these identifiers, a patient could be identified by other information included in the case or clinical material (e.g., if the patient has a very rare condition, or lives in a remote area with a limited population size). In these instances de-identification may not be sufficient to ensure patient privacy. In such exceptional cases it would be advisable to obtain patient consent This document may be reproduced for educational purposes only provided that the following phrase is included in all related materials: Copyright 2015 The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
