COURSE DESCRIPTION

Diagnostic surgical pathology is a rapidly evolving field, informed by discoveries in molecular genetics and improvements in tumor classification.  Uterine, hepatic, bone, lymphoma, gastroesophageal and soft tissue tumor pathology are examples of subspecialty areas that have made dramatic changes in recent years.  Surgical pathologists must become familiar with recent changes in tumor classification, recently developed diagnostic markers, recently discovered molecular genetic alterations and evolving diagnostic criteria for neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders in surgical pathology.  They must also be intuitively conversant with relevant differential diagnoses, ordering appropriate panels of markers and molecular tests, and applying diagnostic criteria to arrive at specific diagnoses.

As a companion interactive microscopy course to the “Fascicles”, and with a superbly experienced and creative, visually motivated faculty, this USCAP-ARP experience promises unparalleled mentoring in an aesthetic ambiance, driven by the art of microscopic images.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Develop a differential diagnosis for a wide range of tumor types
  • Apply immunohistochemistry to help resolve the differential diagnosis
  • Understand the role of molecular genetic testing for tumor diagnosis
