2016 Practical Pathology Seminars

Location: Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, New Orleans, Louisiana

Date: April 28, 2016 to May 01, 2016


Course Description:

Historical New Orleans with its cultural flair, jazz and culinary appeal is the site of USCAP’s 2016 Practical Pathology Seminars, designed to educate the mind and satisfy the palates of practicing pathologists who combine family time with learning opportunities in attractive settings.  The program is derived from short courses that earned considerable attention at the Academy’s Annual Meetings because of their substance and pragmatic practice-changer content.  A superb faculty is poised to provide the latest updates in morphology, ancillary studies, molecular pathology and relevant genomic information.  While the target audience is community practitioners, the panorama of current topics is important to pathologists of all practice genres, including pathologists-in-training.  Learn something new and earn CME/SAMs credits while you’re enlivened by jazz, chicory coffee and beignets.
