About the Meeting
This seminar is meant to provide the practicing pathologist an up-to-date and comprehensive review of a variety of topics in surgical pathology and cytopathology including gastrointestinal, genitourinary, soft tissue, gynecologic and dermatopathology. In some areas, emphasis will be placed on correlation between cytopathology and surgical pathology findings. This course will also include an overview of diagnostic pearls which allow for an accurate diagnosis as well as common diagnostic pitfalls. Portions of the course will also focus on pertinent diagnostic techniques, including immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostics, which allow the pathologist to refine their diagnosis. There will also be a significant opportunity for interactive discussion between participants and faculty.
*Includes a comprehensive color electronic course syllabus.
