The sub-specialized diversity of gynecologic pathology covers numerous sites, diseases and cancers with nuanced details regarding classification of disease, intra-operative consultations, newly-described tests, and staging of gynecologic malignancies. This course concentrates on the intricacies of these complex elements in an effort to enhance what is encountered in real-time clinical practice and introduces surgical pathologists to many of the "pitfalls and pearls" that can be encountered in the routine evaluation and reporting of gynecologic surgical pathology specimens. Whether you’re in clinical community or academic practice, or a pathologist-in-training, this information is invaluable to your performance.
