2020 Diagnostic Pathology Update July 12-17, 2020 | Costa Rica
July 12-17, 2020 - Costa Rica
28.5 CMEs / 28.5 SAMs
USCAP is a transformative leader in pathology education, creating better pathologists with updates in relevant information requisite for their performance and professional growth. The Academy is sensitive to the personal and cultural needs of practicing pathologists by providing conferences that welcome them with their families to exotic destination venues at which they are enriched with new knowledge and unusual experiences. The 2020 Diagnostic Pathology Update course combines expert subspecialized, academic faculty with exposure to ocean and rain forests symbolic of the dichotomy that is Costa Rica. From zip-lining to surfing, this tropical paradise brings pathologists into contact with the cuisine, agriculture, art and geography of a unique country that values education as its primary core value. Costa Rica has eliminated its standing army to use the savings from defense to improve education, health care and a durable social safety net.
USCAP is changing not only how we learn, but where we learn by re-imagining the learning environment and continuously elevating the quality of content. Experience top educators. Refine cognitive skills. Hold coffee beans in your hand. Inhale vapor from raging waterfalls. Witness rainbows in the evanescent colors of iguana skins. Feel sunsets scalding your memory.
