Course Schedule     Faculty Biographies

There are significant new developments in diagnostic gynecologic pathology explicated in the World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of the Female Reproductive Organs, 2014. This systematic educational tool is the reference resource for expert mentors from Harvard, Yale and Stanford to update practicing pathologists with new disease classifications and related diagnostic criteria that will improve performance, guide clinical management of patients and inform further investigations. Challenging cases discussed at multi-head microscopes represent an intimate and interactive learning opportunity. If you seek enrichment, stimulation, knowledge and confidence in diagnosing complex gynecologic pathology cases, this course is for you! USCAP’s venue for interactive microscopy is exceptional, and Palm Springs is a premiere resort destination.
