Course Description

Classification, grading, staging and reporting of GU tumors have evolved significantly in recent years as molecular profiling has made a significant impact on tumor taxonomy and classification. Precision medicine and targeted therapies have emphasized the critical role of histopathological classification in prediction of prognosis and therapeutic response for cancer. These important changes are codified in the WHO Blue Book on Tumors of the Urinary System and Male Genital Organs. The 5th edition is eagerly anticipated in the spring of 2022 and is a complete revision of the 4th edition published in 2016. Expert faculty will guide attendees through the important changes and “new things” in the 5th edition WHO Blue Book in order to generate diagnoses and reports that meet the contemporary patient management needs.

  • Recognize, correctly diagnose and classify new GU tumor types
  • Correctly apply new and modified grading criteria for GU cancers
  • Correctly apply new and modified staging criteria for GU cancers
