Course Schedule     Faculty Biographies

This inaugural Emeritus Course evolved from the
Presidents’ Helix, Past-Presidents (viz., Emeritus Presidents) who remain engaged with the Academy to contribute their historical perspective and leadership to help guide the evolution of USCAP. Six giants, mentors, masters are the nuclear powerhouse of this extraordinary course. Expert eyes (on soft tissue, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, endocrine, thyroid and liver pathology) and eloquent voices will commemorate stories of lesions you’ll never forget. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for an intimate mentoring relationship with pathologists who changed the world and improved patient outcomes.

Course Objectives

  • Create an intimate mentoring experience that simulates clinical sign-out in a back-to-basics experience supporting the concept that personalized medicine begins with personalized education.
  • Facilitate knowledge transfer by accessing world-class experts whose lifetime experience in subspecialty areas of surgical pathology has refined diagnosis and ensured optimal treatment for common and rare diseases.
  • Explore, from expert perspective, the current diagnostic criteria, differential diagnoses, and ancillary studies (molecular, genomic, and stain-based) that clarify and help classify complicated disease processes.
