About The Meeting
This seminar has been designed to provide a comprehensive and practical review of a number of important topics in surgical pathology, including gastrointestinal, pancreaticobiliary, gynecologic, head and neck and genitourinary pathology. This course will include an overview of diagnostic pearls which allow for an accurate diagnosis, as well as how to best avoid some of the common diagnostic pitfalls. Much of the discussion will be related to pertinent diagnostic immunohistochemical and molecular diagnostic techniques, which allow the pathologist to refine their diagnosis and provide additional prognostic and therapeutic information. There will be significant opportunity for inactive discussion between participants and the faculty.
