    USCAP Presents:
    LIVER PATHOLOGY CAN BE FUN - REALLY

    The diagnosis of soft tissue and bone tumors can be a significant challenge (even for experienced pathologists) because of their rarity, the broad morphological spectrum of mesenchymal tumors, and overlap with other soft tissue tumors and non-mesenchymal neoplasms. The discovery of specific histochemical markers and molecular genetic alterations drives the evolution soft tissue classification. If you are a surgical pathologist who struggles with accurate diagnosis of these challenging neoplasms, this is the course for you!

    HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING IN GI PATHOLOGY: NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART

    The evolution of gastrointestinal pathology coincident with development of endoscopy and mucosal biopsies has revolutionized management of patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Virtually every part of the tubular gut is now amenable to visualization and sampling. High-resolution cross-sectional imaging routinely detects asymptomatic tumors in patients under surveillance for chronic liver disease. This intensely focused course, presented by a spectacular faculty, will help pathologists generate comprehensive and accurate differential diagnoses for a variety of inflammatory and neoplastic disorders based on limited biopsy material. Take advantage of this intimate mentoring opportunity and upgrade your performance and diagnostic skills.

    PATHOLOGY OF THE LUNG, PLEURA, MEDIASTINUM, AND HEART/LIVER/LUNG TRANSPLANTATION

    Many pathologists are unfamiliar with a variety of entities in lung, pleural, mediastinal and transplant pathology. The potential for diagnostic error in these areas relates to inexperience from restricted exposure or caseload. Dr. Tazelaar and Churg's interactive microscopy course with an expert faculty is designed to close this practice gap.

    USCAP Presents:
    PRACTICAL UPDATES IN LYMPHOMA

    Lymphomas are highly heterogeneous, consisting of numerous clinicopathologic subtypes and variants whose diagnosis and classification require integration of histologic, immunophenotypic, clinical, molecular and genomic parameters. Furthermore, there is rapid evolution of molecular prognostic factors and therapeutic markers that have clinical impact and challenge pathologists. This interactive microscopy course, supplemented by lectures, highlights the practical aspects of important changes impacting the diagnostic approach to indolent and aggressive B cell lymphomas, Hodgkin lymphoma and T cell lymphoma.

    USCAP Presents:
    DERMATOPATHOLOGY IN THE DESERT

    Dermatopathology in the Desert is an annual resource for surgical pathologists and dermatopathologists to refine their diagnostic skills when confronted with complex and unusual melanocytic lesions, adnexal tumors, cutaneous lymphomas/soft tissue tumors, and diseases of the nails. The struggle to diagnose lesions in these categories is manifest by the nature of consultations received by the faculty, provoking their awareness of need for continuing education and updates in the context of contemporary revisions to precise diagnostic criteria and ancillary studies.

    This course will provide pathologists with a review of diagnostic issues encountered in everyday clinical hematopathology practice and present up-to-date diagnostic approaches utilizing the recently revised WHO Classification. Topics will include an in-depth discussion of microscopic evaluation of hematolymphoid disorders, as well as the appropriate use of a broad range of ancillary studies. The course will address common pitfalls in the morphologic interpretation and immunophenotyping of hematolymphoid proliferations and discuss how to use cytogenetics and molecular testing to inform the diagnosis, using evidence-based guidelines. Material will be presented in lecture format by leading experts in the field and will include interactive sessions consisting of case-based presentations that illustrate common diagnostic pitfalls and underscore points made during the lectures.

    USCAP Presents:
    The Brave New World of Head and Neck Pathology: Updates on the WHO and More

    Head and neck pathology represents a significant portion of surgical pathology practice. Studies have shown this area to be particularly treacherous to community pathologists, with up to 53% of diagnoses changed (including 7% with major changes) upon second review at tertiary care hospitals.

    Complicating this inherent difficulty, there have been numerous recent developments in the field of head and neck pathology. Novel entities have been described, pathognomonic molecular alterations have been uncovered, and major shifts in diagnostic classification schemes have been proposed.

    This interactive microscopy course will help pathologists to stay up-to-date and maintain proficiency in head and neck pathology through an intimate mentoring experience with experts.

    USCAP Presents:
    THORACIC PATHOLOGY

    Thoracic specimens are commonly encountered in clinical practice derived from biopsy and surgical procedures on pulmonary, cardiovascular and mediastinal tissue. The panorama includes neoplasms and non-neoplastic entities. The fact that many of these require evaluation for medical diseases of the thorax provokes anxiety among pathologists, particularly where subspecialty pathologists are not readily available. The last five years contributed a dizzying array of updates in classification, nomenclature and reporting guidelines. Therefore, it’s time for pathologists to update their knowledge and skills in the diagnosis of thoracic pathology in an intimate mentoring environment that unites experienced experts with pathologists desiring a contemporary review of modern thoracic pathology.
