    USCAP Presents:
    Diagnostic Pitfalls in Urologic Pathology

    Prostate needle core biopsies, transurethral resections of prostate, radical prostatectomy specimens, kidney biopsies, nephrectomy specimens, bladder biopsies, partial or total cystectomy specimens, testicular biopsies and orchiectomy specimens are frequently handled by pathology residents/fellows, general surgical pathologists and/or urologic pathologists in academic institutions and private practices. The spectrum of experience and frequency of disease entities are variable. These specimens present diagnostic challenges and risks to the pathologists who evaluate them. This course, based on pragmatic consultation cases and some routine, in-house cases is designed to reinforce accurate diagnoses, avoid diagnostic pitfalls and close existing professional practice gaps.

    Course Location: Palm Springs, CA
    Course Director: Adeboye O. Osunkoya, M.D.

    USCAP Presents:
    A Journey Through Diagnostically Challenging Areas in Gynecological Pathology

    The curated, extraordinary collection of Dr. Robert E. Scully is the legacy of one of the most influential anatomic pathologists of the last sixty years, particularly his work in gynecologic pathology. Drs. Robert H. Young and Jennifer Stall will present unique cases from this archive in an intimate mentoring experience at the USCAP Interactive Learning Center.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has incorporated new, significant developments in various areas of diagnostic gynecologic pathology into its 2014 WHO Classification of Tumours of Female Reproductive Organs. This publication serves as a systemic educational tool for practicing pathologists to adopt new disease classifications and related diagnostic criteria, a guide to clinical management of patients and a disease framework for further investigations. This course parallels and reflects WHO updates and encompasses a broad review of diagnostically challenging areas in gynecologic pathology through intimate mentoring sessions around multi-head microscopes for interactive learning and real-time interchanges focused on the diagnostic experience. The faculty from Harvard, Yale and Stanford will enrich and stimulate you in an exceptional venue within a premiere resort destination (Palm Springs, CA).

    USCAP Presents:
    PLACENTAL PATHOLOGY - A Tour of Common and Rare Pathologies with a Focus on Clinical Relevance

    The placenta provides a wealth of information, retrospectively about the fetus and prospectively regarding the infant. Its examination is an essential component of the autopsy in cases of fetal or infant death, often gives useful insights of the diagnosis and treatment of sick newborns, and reflects the impact of maternal disorders on pregnancy. Yet, most pathologists have had little or no education or training in the examination of the placenta, including its histologic appearance in health and disease, and particularly the range of appearances with gestational age. Pathological examination of the placenta is probably the most under-utilized pathologic assessment of any human tissue.

    This focused course provides the unique opportunity to learn from two experts in an intimate mentoring environment, and to close the practice gaps that reflect deficits in teaching and learning the extraordinary variants of placental pathology and how they relate clinically to infant and maternal management.

    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.

    USCAP Presents:
    Modern Surgical Pathology Through the Expert Eyes of APSS-USCAP

    This inaugural co-branded interactive microscopy course presents the synergistic union of expert surgical pathologists from the prestigious Arthur Purdy Stout Society and from USCAP, collaborating (through education of pathologists) to eliminate a variety of practice gaps in diagnostic surgical pathology. For example, there is a misdiagnosis rate of about 10% in breast biopsies, but for some notoriously problematic lesions, the rate is even higher.

    A review of the literature and the collective clinical experience of this faculty as consultant surgical pathologists have clearly documented areas in diagnostic surgical pathology that remain problematic even for experienced pathologists. Examples include the categorization of proliferative breast lesions, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, small glandular proliferations in the prostate, and soft tissue lesions. With the frequent use of core needle biopsy, pathologists are often faced with the challenge of distinguishing these entities on small specimen samples.

    The value of this course is its intent to eliminate diagnostic errors by highlighting pitfalls and approaches to resolve them using routine microscopic examination of H&E-stained sections and immuno-stains. The role of newer adjunctive molecular tests will also be discussed where appropriate. Thus, this course addresses medical knowledge and competence with the goal of improving clinical practice.

    USCAP Presents:
    Recent Advances in Soft Tissue Tumor Pathology: Evolving Classification, Novel Molecular Findings and New Diagnostic Markers

    The diagnosis of soft tissue 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 classification of soft tissue tumors continues to evolve, following the description of “new” tumor types, the discovery of novel molecular genetic alterations, and the development of increasingly specific diagnostic immunohistochemical markers. If your specialty interest is in soft tissue pathology, or if your practice requires enhanced competency in evaluating soft tissue lesions, this course is designed to familiarize you with recently-described soft tissue tumors and recently developed diagnostic markers.

    USCAP Presents:
    Leadership, Collaboration and Change in Healthcare: A Course for Emerging Leaders in Pathology

    With healthcare in the United States changing rapidly to meet the mandate for high-quality, cost-effective, patient-centered care, the need for effective physician leaders has never been more cogent. Leadership and management skills are essential for individual physicians and for healthcare organizations to achieve the best outcomes. Formal cultivation of these skills has not been targeted to young faculty during their formative years, creating a professional practice gap and an opportunity.

    This special course is intended for junior faculty (within their first five to seven years of practice) who are interested in developing skills that will benefit them as emerging leaders at their home institution, as well as within other professional organizations. The curriculum provides an opportunity for participants to experience a guided exploration of several areas of study that are critical to effective leadership, including the characteristics of effective leadership and effective teams, the concept of emotional intelligence as it applies to leadership, understanding organizational culture and strategy, and prevention of physician burnout. The course faculty are senior academicians with experience in education, mentorship, and functioning as leaders within a changing healthcare environment.

    Course Location: Palm Springs, CA
    Course Directors: Carol F. Farver, M.D. & Laura W. Lamps, M.D.

    USCAP Presents:
    Liver Pathology: Translating a World of Colors into Clinically Relevant Pathology Reports

    The microscopic pattern of liver biopsies for non-neoplastic diseases has changed with increasing emphasis on steatohepatitis, fibrosis regression and drug-induced liver disease. The reasons for these changes (based on consultative cases at several large medical centers) include classification of an hepatic pattern of injury, primary biliary cholangitis, fatty liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis, etiology of cirrhosis and transplant pathology (unpublished data). Among the neoplastic cases, hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma/metastatic adenocarcinoma and hepatocellular adenoma are the leading areas that cause problems in diagnosis for practicing pathologists. Advances in radiologic techniques facilitate targeting smaller lesions, necessitating judicious use of immunohistochemistry.

    In the last few years, characteristic molecular changes have been described in a variety of liver tumors and are increasingly being used for diagnosis. Take advantage of this fantastic mentoring opportunity to study liver interactively with experts who can improve your performance and enhance your practice.

    You should consider taking this course in contiguity with Twists and Turns of Problematic GI Pathology and How to Find Your Way Out!, directed by Dr. Gregory Y. Lauwers, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center/University of South Florida, January 27-30, 2019.

    USCAP Presents:
    Head and Neck Cytopathology: Practical Tools for Common Cases

    Early diagnosis of a myriad of benign and malignant diseases (presenting as swellings) affecting the head and neck provides the best chance for successful treatment. Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) is an expedient and cost-effective method to sample these masses and is the primary biopsy method for thyroid and salivary glands and a useful approach to evaluate lymph nodes. The majority of practicing pathologists have not completed formal fellowship training in cytopathology and do not have a diagnostic paradigm for these relatively common specimen types. This course is intended to help close the gap by building a strong foundation in head and neck cytopathology and familiarizing attendees with the common diagnostic challenges encountered when evaluating FNA specimens from the thyroid, salivary glands and lymph nodes. The outcome should be an increase in the number of definitive diagnoses, reduction in equivocal diagnoses, and mitigation of repeat FNA or subsequent invasive procedures. The target audience is general pathologists with an interest in cytopathology, pathology residents and fellows, surgical pathology fellows and cytopathology fellows.

    The introduction to Cancer Cytopathology's inaugural Supplement (Volume 125/Issue 6/June 2017) leads with the concept that cytopathology is the nexus for patient-centered care. The convergence of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, refinements in imaging and guided biopsies, molecular testing and whole genome sequencing, the emergence of targeted therapies, and the awakening of pathologists to their critical role in patient care, safety and outcomes have created a new force in medicine: pathologists are critical members of the health care team and patients are at the center of their concerns and efforts.

    Immersive Cytopathology Experience (ICE) has been redesigned for presentation at a fabulous venue in Reykjavik, Iceland, combining concepts from Diagnostic Cytopathology and classical ICE (a hands-on learning experience at the USCAP Interactive Learning Center). There is monumental value in case-based learning that simulates multidisciplinary collaborative interaction of hospital-based tumor boards. This program is highlighted by the interaction of interventional cytopathologists with a surgeon, exemplary patient, and challenging cases from academic institutions, focusing on head and neck clinical lesions.

    Classification schemes, the molecular and genetic basis of head and neck disease, procedural approaches to specimen acquisition and processing, empathetic communication, quality and patient safety, and measuring the non-clinical performance of the academic pathologist contribute texture and depth to this learning experience. The schedule accommodates time for you to experience ICELAND, from The Blue Lagoon to the Northern Lights and locations where Game of Thrones is filmed. USCAP is transforming how we learn and where we learn. From a 15th century convent in Florence to the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Iceland, learners "come from away" for their unique and enduring experience.

    USCAP Presents:
    Pediatric Pathology: Selected Topics for General Surgical Pathologists

    The practice of pediatric pathology differs significantly from that of adult surgical pathology: certain tumor types and medical conditions are much more common in the pediatric population (e.g., celiac disease, soft tissue sarcomas); the microscopic appearances of certain diseases common to pediatric and adult populations often differ (e.g., non-necrotizing granulomas are much more common in pediatric patients with Crohn's disease compared with adults); and molecular techniques are more commonly employed in the workup of pediatric neoplasia.

    This course is intended to familiarize general surgical pathologists with pediatric specimens that occur less commonly in their practices. Highly skilled pediatric pathologists will share their expertise in an intimate mentoring experience at the USCAP Interactive Center where learning is an inevitability.

    USCAP Presents:
    Practical Neuropathology for Today's Practice

    Neuropathology cases provide a particular challenge for practicing surgical pathologists because they are less common than cases from other organ systems, typically comprising fewer than 1% of cases in most practices, and are relatively more complex. Consequently, pathologists have less experience with neuropathology which translates to less comfort in making diagnoses. These mentoring sessions with experts are intended to provide practicing pathologists and pathologists-in-training with strategies relating to how to approach a case, differential diagnostic considerations, ancillary testing useful to resolving differential diagnoses, and the clinical implications of their diagnostic decisions. This is your opportunity to increase your comfort level, confidence and expertise in the interpretation and classification of neuropathology cases you will inevitably see in your diverse practices.
