Course Schedule     Faculty Biographies

Gynecologic pathology is evolving with rapid momentum, necessitating change. New classifications for endometrial pre-cancerous lesions were endorsed in 2014 by the World Health Organization; a proposed new classification system for endocervical adenocarcinoma is gaining traction; and the molecular classification of endometrial carcinomas is a current topic of discussion. This interactive microscopy course was organized by its faculty to familiarize practicing pathologists and pathologists-in-training with the new terminology, criteria, changes and molecular developments in uterine pathology as a stimulus to practice improvement and professional growth. Interactive microscopy simulates clinical sign out in an ambiance of intimate mentoring and is a highly desirable learning methodology.

Course Objectives

  • Recognize endometrial pre-cancers and utilize correct terminology as set forth in the 2014 WHO blue book
  • Apply the new pattern-based classification system to endocervical adenocarcinoma
  • Describe diagnostic algorithms that may be helpful in cases of high grade endometrial adenocarcinoma
  • Describe new molecular classification schemes and testing options for select uterine neoplasms
  • Recognize and classify several uncommon epithelial and mesenchymal lesions of the uterus

Explore Palm Springs from mid-century modern architecture to desert hikes, trendy restaurants, museums, art galleries, coffee houses and bars.
