16 CMEs / 12 SAMs

Course Schedule     Faculty Biographies

The World Health Organization (WHO) has incorporated new, significant developments in various areas of diagnostic gynecologic pathology into its 2014 WHO Classification of Tumours of Female Reproductive Organs. This publication serves as a systemic educational tool for practicing pathologists to adopt new disease classifications and related diagnostic criteria, a guide to clinical management of patients and a disease framework for further investigations. This course parallels and reflects WHO updates and encompasses a broad review of diagnostically challenging areas in gynecologic pathology through intimate mentoring sessions around multi-head microscopes for interactive learning and real-time interchanges focused on the diagnostic experience. The faculty from Harvard, Yale and Stanford will enrich and stimulate you in an exceptional venue within a premiere resort destination (Palm Springs, CA).

Course Objectives

  • Recognize new diagnostic criteria and disease classifications in gynecological pathology
  • Apply morphologic and immuno-histochemical criteria for differential diagnoses
  • Recognize uncommon/unusual gynecologic disease entities and their diagnostic criteria
