Free Educational Resources

ICCS has a large number of clinical educational resources, created by the hardworking members of our Education and Quality & Standards committees. These resources include videos, quality and standards modules, E-learning activities, case studies, Q&A modules, and newsletter articles to name a few. Many of these resources are created jointly by committee members and undergo peer review. A full listing of ICCS educational resources can be viewed at the following link: https://www.cytometry.org/Resource-Center/

Several of these modules are available to ICCS members only; however, the following resources are open access and we encourage you to share them with your students, trainees, and colleagues.

Open access resources include:
Q&S modules
Ask an Expert modules
CSI cases
Videos produced by the Clinical Cytometry Education Network (CCEN)

In addition, during this time, when face to face and in person education is becoming more challenging, we are releasing 4 popular items from behind our “members only” firewall and we are working to produce a series of new virtual training tools to facilitate remote flow cytometry education.

These resources are listed below. This page will be updated regularly as new training resources are generated. We encourage you to check back frequently. One great way to keep up with the latest from the society is to join us on Twitter. Posting of new educational offerings will be announced from our Twitter handle (@ICCS_ Education).

ICCS would also like to highlight the Hematopathology Virtual Curriculum available at the society for hematopathology website: https://www.society-for-hematopathology.org/web/education-virtual-curriculum.php
