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, and 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.

Objectives:

The primary 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 release of reporting guidelines for reporting for surgical specimens in various journals. The topics or 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. Decrease errors and identify pitfalls in the diagnosis of specific diseases in everyday
    surgical pathology;
  2. Recognize mimickers of specific diseases in each specialty and improve interpretation
    of special studies that will foster improved differential diagnosis;
  3. Improve competence in identification of histopathological characteristics of disease
    to reach unequivocal diagnosis;
  4. Increase knowledge of the recent changes/modifications in the pathological
    classification of diseases or lesions to improve patient care
