They will help you enhance your diagnostic skills by a series of interactive lectures and digital microscopy sessions. They will share pearls and pitfalls in diagnostic interpretation. The discussion will include pertinent immunohistochemical and molecular genetic techniques.

Over these two days, the symposium has been designed to provide a practical and comprehensive review of a variety of topics in Anatomic Pathology, including Breast Pathology, Gastrointestinal Pathology, Genitourinary Tract Pathology, and Gynecologic Pathology.

At the completion of this course, you will be familiar with the most up-to-date terminology and diagnostic criteria for a wide variety of diagnoses. You will be able to use relevant ancillary tests to support your diagnoses.
