Welcome to the website of the UK Endocrine Pathology Society (the UKEPS). The scope of the UKEPS includes all endocrine histopathology apart from the pituitary gland.

Its roles & functions are to

  • offer networking opportunities for interested endocrine pathologists

  • nominate individuals to participate in pathology assessments for clinical trials & for other national organisations

The UKEPS meets twice yearly at various UK locations. It focuses primarily on endocrine histology, but also includes cytology in so far as it supports histology. Details of UKEPS meetings, slide circulations, relevant documents & links to other organisations of interest including their meetings can be found on this website. To join there is a single enrolement fee of £50. Currently there is no annual subscription fee.  Please click on this link for further information
