Challenges in Hematology
Distinguishing between reactive and neoplastic proliferations in blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen and extra-nodal hematopoietic tissues, as well as accurately classifying neoplasms once they are identified, are essential for appropriate patient care. Pathologists struggle with differentiating reactive from neoplastic conditions in these organs, as well as in properly classifying hematopoietic neoplasms once they are diagnosed. This highly respected expert faculty will provide a unique mentoring experience in an intimate study environment at USCAP's Interactive Learning Center. They intend to cover diagnostic criteria for new entities in the 2016 WHO Classification of Hematopoietic and Lymphoid Neoplasms and provide useful morphologic clues and ancillary techniques to help you distinguish neoplastic and reactive conditions.

OUT OF THE MOLD: The Emergence of Modern Dermatopathology Imagined Through Maladies in Wax
USCAP is transforming not only how we learn, but where we learn. This course will be taught by a world class faculty in one of the most historically important settings in dermatopathology, La MusÃ©e des Moulages, the dermatology wax works museum of HÃ´pital Saint Louis. Dynamic lectures will provide panoramic insight into relevant aspects of dermatopathology including inflammatory dermatoses, melanocytic tumors, cutaneous lymphomas, soft tissue tumors and adnexal tumors. In addition to learning cutting-edge dermatopathology, you will immerse yourselves in the medical history of dermatology and dermatopathology in one of the most important archives of cutaneous diseases. The charm and glamour of Paris with its varied culinary, artistic and architectural allures will make your learning experience even more significant!
