Credit: 18.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™

Overview:
This annual course addresses a wide range of topics in anatomic pathology and explores new and evolving areas in the diagnosis and analysis of disease. It aims to provide the latest practical and theoretical information that will aid the practicing pathologist in solving those problems most often encountered in the anatomic pathology laboratory.

An audience response system will facilitate questions and discussion. A complete course syllabus will be provided for all participants. Participants will be able to register for either the entire three day meeting or for any combination of individual one day blocks.

This year the course will continue to offer a new method of educational activity in the form of Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs). Participants can receive this credit by taking a multiple choice exam based on content presented earlier in the day. The moderators will then discuss the questions and answers with the audience. Audience members are encouraged to engage the moderators with their own questions during this review.

Objectives:
The goal of this course is to identify areas of diagnostic difficulties and challenges in everyday surgical pathology and cytopathology practice, and to provide expert insight on selected topics through didactic lectures, tutorial sessions, and interactive reviews. The educational experience is further enhanced through collegial contact and one-on-one interaction during the course. The topics selected this year reflect areas in which substantial information and progress has been made, as exemplified by the recent publication of guidelines for reporting of surgical specimens in various journals. The topics and discussions also focus on areas in which there is significant difficulty in interpretation of pathological features by the pathologist. In general terms, we expect that at the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  1. Identify common mistakes and pitfalls in the diagnosis of specific diseases in everyday surgical pathology;
  2. Recognize mimickers of specific diseases in each specialty and learn to interpret special studies that will allow easier differential diagnosis;
  3. Incorporate the pertinent histopathological characteristics of diseases in question that will allow unequivocal diagnosis;
  4. Identify new and additional components of the pathology report that will improve the clinical value of the pathology report;
  5. Adopt the recent changes/modifications in the pathological classification of diseases or lesions.
