The Association for Comparative Clinical Pathology was formed to promote discussion to provide a better knowledge and understanding of all aspects of Comparative Clinical Pathology, including (but not exclusively limited to) Haematology, Clinical Biochemistry and Cytology. Prime functions of the ACCP are to promote education and training in the subjects and encourage research and publication of data.

The Association was formed from the merger of the Animal Clinical Chemistry Association (ACCA) and the Association for Comparative Haematology (ACH) in the nineteen nineties.
It was created as a forum for people working in the veterinary, diagnostic and pharmaceutical industries to be able to communicate and provide

We meet annually at our scientific meeting and also offer training courses to educate students and individuals working in the arts of peripheral blood and bone marrow microscopical analysis, and in the
data interpretation of clinical pathology data.
Our previous events in 2014 (Alderley Edge), 2015 and 2016 (Hellidon Lakes), 2017 (Warwick University), 2018 (The Belfry Hotel) and 2019 (Athens) have met with great success.
Disseminating current research and interests in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, toxicology and veterinary sciences
Meetings and courses are held on an annual basis.
The next Scientific Meeting was due to be held in Vienna (Austria), between the 24th and 27th June 2020 as a joint venture between the ACCP and the ESVCP, however, due to travel restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic it will now be held virtually.

This External Quality Assurance Scheme is available to all members of the ACCP who wish to compare their results when performing bone marrow smear evaluation and peripheral blood film analysis with other participants
Individuals are allocated a unique number in order to protect confidentiality. Distribution of slides in CaseViewer will be at approximately one-two month intervals.
Participants are invited to review bone marrow or peripheral blood film images, and return the results for statistical analysis by the organisers. Results will be returned before the next distribution is issued and will include; individual performance identified using only the unique ID numbers, the consensus results and a statistical summary. It is expected that there will be a yearly report of the program at the annual ACCP meeting and furthermore this may be published.
