Course Description

Join expert pathologists as they guide you through the nomenclature, staging, and ancillary studies for your everyday surgical pathology practice. Faculty will help distinguish between what looks atypical but benign from those that look bland but are malignant. Through the case-based discussion at the Palm Springs Interactive Center, faculty will discuss histological features that are needed to make a specific diagnosis; how histology plays a role in outcomes; whether staging is important and what system to use. Topics will cover Gynecologic, Breast, Genitourinary, Gastrointestinal, Thoracic, and Head and Neck Pathology.

  • Determine which cases need to be worked further with immunohistochemistry or molecular techniques
  • Become familiar with the different nomenclatures
  • Become familiar with the different staging schemas
  • Determine which features are important in separating benign and unusual from bland and malignant
