Course Schedule        Faculty Biographies

This interactive microscopy course is designed to address the professional practice gap and knowledge needs in the analysis of specimens from the head and neck region that encompasses a diversity of tissue types leading to a broad array of pathologic alterations manifest as cellular and tissue aberrations.  Pathologists continue to experience difficulty in diagnostic criteria for papillary and follicular thyroid lesions, particularly with changing terminology for papillary lesions, bewildering metaplastic changes in salivary glands, appropriate application of HPV testing and algorithms to determine tumors of unknown origin metastatic to head and neck.  This panorama of experts will delve into these issues and update learners in a mentoring relationship at multihead microscopes, simulating clinical signout, and providing real-time interaction.  The union of microscopy with adjunctive molecular and genetic tests creates a unique learning experience in a resort destination.
