The Arthur Purdy Stout Society of Surgical Pathologists and USCAP continue their collaborative commitment to provide superb education for practicing pathologists. The Third Edition is designed to eliminate a variety of practice gaps in diagnostic surgical pathology. The faculty’s review of the literature and collective clinical experience as consultant surgical pathologists have revealed areas that remain problematic for pathologists. Examples include the categorization of proliferative breast lesions, biopsies of genitourinary tract, classification of inflammatory conditions of the upper gastrointestinal tract, distinction between usual interstitial pneumonia and its mimics, and the differential diagnoses of salivary gland tumors.

This interactive microscopy course attempts to eliminate diagnostic errors by highlighting pitfalls and approaches to resolve them using routine microscopic examination and immunohistochemistry. The roles of adjunctive molecular tests will be discussed as appropriate.

Thus, this course will address both medical knowledge and competence with the goal of improving clinical practice.

Registrants will have the opportunity to experience USCAP’s new international headquarters and learning center at the heart of vibrant Palm Springs, California, a unique and fascinating resort destination.


  • Discuss the uses and limitations of immunohistochemistry in diagnostic surgical pathology
