Course Schedule      Faculty Biographies

The complexities of the head and neck region create a unique set of difficulties for pathologists, particularly if they are neuroendocrine specimens handled by general pathologists who do not see a high volume of these cases. The subtleties in the spectrum of their presentation in the context of differential diagnostic alternatives create a professional practice gap that can be closed by personalized, mentoring instruction with experts at multi-head microscopes. This course reinforces diagnostic cognitive strategies and underscores the pathologist as an integral player in the multidisciplinary team responsible for correct diagnosis and assignment to therapy. A concentrated, intense review of head and neck cases with experts at USCAP’s unique learning center in Palm Springs, California offers an unparalleled experience in a resort setting.
