USCAP Diagnostic Cytopathology 2016

Dates: January 16, 2016 to January 18, 2016

Website: http://www.uscap.org/meetings/detail/2016-diagnostic-cytopathology/

Course Description:

Diagnostic Cytopathology is designed to address professional practice gaps in current cytopathology procedures, adjunctive and molecular techniques, diagnostic criteria/interpretations and classification updates for pathologists in daily practice, particularly in the community hospital and private sectors.  Cytopathology partners with surgical pathology in providing expedient, accurate, and cost-effective anatomically-based decisions that guide patient care to optimal outcomes.  The USCAP faculty is expertly positioned to provide the latest information in diagnosis, molecular pathology and translational research, offering solution-based information as practice changers.  This contemporary course is augmented by elective interactive microscopy sessions that unite expert mentors with registrants in an intimate setting simulating clinical sign-out and consultations at 18-head microscopes.  The cases are challenging and prone to provocative discussions and imaginative ideas.
