Pathology and Cytology of the Lung, Pleura, Mediastinum and Heart/Lung Transplantation
Pathologists are generally unfamiliar with a variety of entities in lung, pleural and mediastinal pathology, leading to diagnostic errors. Furthermore, issues related to heart/lung transplantation require specialized knowledge and experience. Interactive microscopy at the USCAP Learning Center provides a unique and intimate mentoring opportunity to discuss interstitial lung disease, pleuro-pulmonary malignancies, transplant rejection, and the cytomorphologic representation of specimens from these sites, including best practices for optimal triage of lung cancer specimens for molecular testing.
Course Location: Palm Springs, CA
Course Directors: Henry D. Tazelaar, M.D. and Andrew Churg, M.D., Ph.D.
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.
