Unlock Your Ingenuity at the 108th USCAP Annual Meeting in National Harbor, Maryland from March 16-21, 2019.
People gather from around the world each year at the Annual Meeting. They come for discovery, to experience others' imagination, to learn, sustain, excel, grow, experience. They come for reunion, exchange, sharing, and inspiration.
This year's venue is compelling, offering the convenient integration of hotel and convention space under a glass ceiling, at the edge of the bay, just outside our nation's capital. Shuttles will operate to Washington, D.C. to encourage new experiences outside the conference milieu. Inside will be the organized content you expect, with special sensitivity to diversity and inclusion.
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.
Course Location: Palm Springs, CA
Course Directors: Theonia K. Boyd, M.D. and Jeffrey D. Goldsmith, M.D.
