The content of this month’s issue once again illustrates the focus of our Journal: diagnostic pathology with an emphasis on new molecular diagnostics and applying insight in molecular mechanisms for classification, as well as on education in pathology. To begin with the latter, Egevad et al. ( https://​doi.​org/​10.​1007/​s00428-019-02540-w) report on the efforts of the International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) to improve diagnostic performance regarding histological classification of neoplastic lesions in the prostate using web-based education tools, including tutorials and formative tests. The paper presents two remarkable results. First is documentation of the differences in performance between pathologists from upper middle, lower middle and low resource countries in Asia and South America, those from low resource countries reaching a correct diagnosis before the teaching course in less than half of the cases, while upper middle and lower middle income country based pathologists were correct in roughly two out of three cases. The second is the efficacy of the web-based education tools: low resource country-based pathologists came close to the performance of those from (upper and lower) middle income countries after taking the course. The results emphasize the importance of web-based teaching, limited in the paper to pathologists based in countries with low resources but undoubtedly valid also for pathology training in high resource countries. ...
