Histologic and cytologic preparations form an integral part of pathology education from basic training to continuing education. At all levels of education the provision of adequate reference material poses a problem. In particular, from small biopsies and cytologic material only very few representative slides can be produced. This problem can be circumvented by virtual slides i.e. fully digitized histologic and cytologic preparations that can be investigated microscopically over the internet by an unlimited number of students. Main objectives of PathoPedia: - Development of an open access online atlas with premium quality histologic and cytologic reference slides for a visually oriented discipline. - Provision of learning material for active and self-guided learning by allocating slides that can be interactively microscopied. - Modular technical concept allowing for the reuse of the contents in different contexts and for a cost-saving support independent of technical experts. - Integration of PathoPedia slides in already existing award winning course modules at all levels of education.
