About – The Society

The International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) is the international professional organization for uropathology. Our aim is to issue guidelines for the practice of urological pathology and to provide educational activites for pathologists around the world. ISUP is a companion society of The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) but aims to be a truly international society. We currently have more than 600 members from 50 countries in 6 continents but the distance between us is short with frequent email correspondence.


We have organized a large number of consensus meetings over the past decade, usually held at the USCAP meeting. These meetings have great educational value and serve to set the standard for how urological pathology is practised. We are also involved in the uropathology program of other major pathology meetings around the world.
