Patologia Interactiva: Actualización basada en caso
Como disciplina, la Patologia siempre esta en constante evolucion. Es necesario que el patologo se mantenga actualizado en los desarrollos de la practica importantes para el manejo de pacientes, desde cambios en guias de manejo hasta el surgimiento de nuevos criterios diagnosticos y herramientas ancilares. En este proceso de actualizacion, patologos practicando en paises de habla hispana requieren informacion en su idioma. Desafortunadamente, la mayoria de publicaciones, incluyendo recomendaciones escritas por organismos internacionales como la OMS, son escritas primariamente en ingles. Una educacion optima en patologia, que promueva una implementacion exitosa de los ultimos avances y recomendaciones, tiene que incorporar el idioma primario del practicante. Con esta importante premisa en mente, este curso organizado por USCAP busca ser una fuente de informacion de alta calidad y un formato practico e interactive completamente en Español.
The discipline of pathology is in constant evolution. The pathologist is required to stay current in practice developments that impact patient care, from changes in practice recommendations to emerging diagnostic criteria and ancillary techniques. Continuing medical education exists for this purpose. Pathologists practicing in Spanish-speaking countries, however, may find it challenging to stay updated. First, most of the peer-reviewed literature is in English. Second, most of the consensus and evidence-based recommendations by international organizations and professional societies (such as the World Health Organization and the International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting) are also primarily in English. Finally, the discovery and characterization of new diagnostic entities and ancillary tools, as well as the implementation of novel practices, often occurs first in English-speaking institutions. Optimal training and proficiency in pathology, as well as successful implementation of practice recommendations, need to diversify by incorporating the learner's primary language. With this in mind, USCAP’s intention with this course is to provide high-quality continuing medical education in Pathology completely in Spanish, in the context of an intimate mentoring environment that simulates residency training.

Cytopathology as a discipline has been re-imagined by 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. A new force in medicine is emerging: 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 San Sebastian, Spain, with change in emphasis to interventional diagnostics. There is monumental value in the intersection of case-based learning, multidisciplinary collaborative interaction of care teams, clinical correlations, the partnership with advanced imaging, and awareness of communications, empathy and patient safety.
The schedule accommodates time for you to experience San Sebastian, and nearby Bilbao to visit the Guggenheim Museum designed by Frank Gehry. The culinary scene is unparalleled, and the geography is magnificent.
USCAP is transforming not only how we learn but where we learn. Pathologists can benefit from superb teaching with invaluable exposure to cross-cultural experiences.
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.
