A Practical Approach to Problematic Breast Lesions
This interactive microscopy course, taught by experts from Harvard Medical School, Stanford and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, is designed to eliminate a variety of practice gaps in diagnostic breast pathology.
In general, there is a misdiagnosis rate of about 10% in breast biopsies, which may be even higher for some notoriously problematic lesions. This course (through intimate mentoring) attempts to reduce or eliminate diagnostic error by highlighting pitfalls and illustrating practical approaches to resolve them, using routine microscopic examination of H&E-stained sections with appropriate ancillary testing. The intended outcome is improved clinical practice and patient outcomes.
Course Location: Palm Springs, CA

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.
