The German Society of Pathology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Pathologie e.V., DGP) is the scientific medical society of pathologists in Germany with members from Austria and Switzerland as well. It was founded by Rudolf Virchow in 1897. DGP aims to promote the discipline in all relevant aspects. Besides conventional diagnostics, there is a strong focus on basic science as well as R&D in the fields of molecular diagnostics and digital pathology and informatics. The society has over 1,000 members, mainly from academic institutions. Many of them are organized in 15 smaller, mostly organ specific working groups within DGP. The society organizes conferences, meetings and workshops, publishes journals and awards prizes for outstanding scientific achievements. It also focuses on press and publicity work in the areas of scholarship and research, special programs for young scientists in pathology, interdisciplinary networking as well as the joined development and update of medical guidelines. DGP has its own foundation, the Rudolf-Virchow-Foundation of Pathology. Together with the professional association of German pathologists (Bundesverband Deutscher Pathologen e.V., BDP) DGP also owns a subsidiary firm for quality assurance, called QuIP GmbH.
