USCAP Presents:
Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology from Head to Toe: An Anatomical Approach

Bone and soft tissue pathology is challenging, even for experienced surgical pathologists. Mesenchymal tumors are rare, show a wide morphologic spectrum with significant histologic overlap between benign and malignant tumors and between mesenchymal and non-mesenchymal tumors. Moreover, the classification of bone and soft tissue tumors continues to evolve with rare "new" entities being described with ever-increasing frequency on the basis of distinctive molecular or histologic features. As the field grows more complex, surgical pathologists may struggle to stay up to date with new entities, changes in staging guidelines, recently developed immunohistochemical and molecular diagnostic tests, and may therefore struggle with accurate diagnosis. To help resolve these issues and update your current knowledge, USCAP is offering a unique mentoring opportunity with experienced educators who can help you focus on these updates through interactive dialogue and shared exemplary cases.

USCAP Presents:
Contemporary Cytopathology: A Practical Approach

Cytopathology possesses inherent diagnostic challenges in routine daily practice, compounded in recent years by numerous developments. Novel entities have been described, molecular alterations have been discovered, and multiple major shifts in diagnostic classification schemes have been introduced. It is difficult for pathologists to stay current and maintain proficiency in cytopathology without supplemental training and education.

There is growing demand and expectation by clinicians for pathologists to provide contemporary cytology services in this era of precision medicine, emphasizing cytopathology’s critical role as adjunct to targeted therapies. Accurate diagnosis is paramount to the initiation of appropriate treatment and depends on specific skills, clinical knowledge, awareness of the broad cytomorphologic range and overlap of lesions that may be encountered, and familiarity with ancillary tests.

This course is pragmatic, clinically oriented and stimulating. The selected cases are associated with potential diagnostic challenges and risks in day-to-day practice. Four experts provide an intimate mentoring experience in a superb learning environment that reflects USCAP’s educational standards.

2021 Tutorial In Pathology of the GI Tract, Pancreas, and Liver

Gastrointestinal pathology emerged as a subspecialty in the early 1980s, coincident with development of endoscopy and mucosal biopsy for diagnosis and management of patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Since that time, changes in tissue acquisition techniques and ancillary testing have drastically transformed the discipline; current practice bears little resemblance to that of our mentors. The past two decades have seen an explosion in the number and types of biopsy samples pathologists encounter in daily practice. Virtually every part of the tubular gut is now amenable to visualization and sampling, and most liver biopsies are performed by radiologists who utilize small-caliber needles. As a result, pathologists are expected to generate comprehensive and accurate differential diagnoses for a variety of inflammatory and neoplastic disorders based on limited biopsy material. Pathologists must be able to concentrate on key features in order to narrow the differential diagnosis and facilitate patient management.

This course in a charming medieval city in Belgium, built on canals, provides an ideal venue and faculty for learning what you need to improve your practice as a general surgical pathologist, gastrointestinal diagnostic specialist or pathologist-in-training. The Sint-Janshospitaal has been partially converted to a modern conference facility, but retains the essence of its tenure as a medical facility, supported by a fascinating museum.

USCAP Presents:
A Contemporary Approach and Update on the Classification, Grading, Staging and Reporting of GU Tumors

Classification, grading, staging and reporting of GU tumors continue to evolve with the discovery of pathogenic mechanisms and the advent of novel diagnostic tools and therapies. It is imperative for practicing pathologists to keep pace with the important changes in GU tumor pathology in order to produce pathology diagnoses and reports that meet contemporary patient management needs. Examples requiring educational focus are the significant error rate and inter-observer variability in the diagnosis of cribriform carcinoma and intraductal carcinoma of prostate; under-recognition and under-reporting of bladder cancer variants; misclassification of testicular germ cell tumors correlated with drastic revision of WHO 2016 classification; modifications in prostate grading correlative with newly described morphologic changes, new outcome data and adjustment to the modified Gleason grading system; changes in GU tumor staging following publication of the 8th edition of the AJCC Staging guidelines; requisite refinements in cancer reporting to eliminate significant variation, error, and missing relevant elements. This course is a pragmatic exercise in mentoring for advanced learning taught by international experts who reflect USCAP’s gold standard.

USCAP Presents:
Crash Course in Gastrointestinal, Liver and Pancreaticobiliary Pathology: An Emphasis on Current Guidelines and WHO Updates

Based on cumulative experience from subspecialty-based GI practices, this faculty ensemble has identified pathologic entities and concepts in GI, liver and pancreatic pathology that continue to pose diagnostic challenges on a daily basis. Such challenges relate directly to interpreting limited biopsy samples, generating succinct differential diagnoses (particularly for inflammatory conditions, medical liver injury, non-adenocarcinoma neoplasia of pancreas, and non-GIST mesenchymal tumors), the impact of genetics on diagnosis and classification, constantly changing disease classifications and the fluidity of practice guidelines in the context of emerging evidence-based data. This course is designed to provide systematic algorithms for assessing malabsorption disorders, gastritis, colitides, neoplasms, pancreatic inflammatory and neoplastic diseases, and medical liver biopsies that can be implemented in daily practice.

Case discussions will facilitate understanding of basic and recent concepts in terminology, prognostic features, and basic pathobiology for practicing pathologists, enhanced by current management guidelines relevant to Barrett esophagus, IBD-related dysplasia, appendiceal mucinous lesions, pancreatic inflammatory diseases and neoplasms, hepatic inflammatory diseases and neoplasms, and mesenchymal tumors.
You can expect a highly engaging mentoring experience that will improve your performance and practice while learning in a unique destination location orchestrated by USCAP to achieve optimal satisfaction.

USCAP Presents:
Head and Neck Pathology: Top to Bottom Training to Avoid the Ups and Downs

Head and neck pathology represents a significant portion of surgical pathology practice. Studies have shown this area to be particularly treacherous to community pathologists with up to 53% of diagnoses changed (including 7% with major changes) upon second review at tertiary care hospitals (Kronz and Westra, Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surgery 2005; 13:81-4).

In recent years there have been numerous developments in head and neck pathology, further complicating this inherent difficulty. Novel entities have been described, pathognomonic molecular alterations have been uncovered, and major shifts in diagnostic classification schemes have been proposed. Many of these concepts were incorporated into the newest editions of the WHO Classifications for Head and Neck and Endocrine Tumors, both of which were published recently.

Taken together, it is difficult for pathologists to stay current and maintain proficiency in head and neck pathology without supplemental training and education. This course is a terrific opportunity to refine your diagnostic skills in a uniquely personal mentoring environment with energetic pathologists whose keen eyes, diagnostic acumen, and a modern approach will create an indelible impression.

This course is designed for general pathologists, practicing surgical pathologists, senior residents and pathologists with special interest in head and neck pathology.

USCAP Presents:
Journey to the Center of the Chest
An expert’s perspective on mediastinal pathology

Mediastinal pathology has a fascinating specificity in surgical pathology, because it is focused primarily on a single gland (the thymus) that involutes as we age, is more prominent in children than in adults, and requires a unique approach to diagnosis and clinical course. The infrequency of mediastinal tumors influences evolution of expertise by individual pathologists and their institutions. The recent introduction of new classification and staging schemas poses a novel challenge for those confronted with assessing mediastinal lesions. It is essential for practicing pathologists to become familiar with new modalities that impact treatment options and clinical outcomes. It is even more important to become familiar with the diversity of tumors that can occur in the mediastinal compartment. This course provides a unique opportunity for a tutorial in mediastinal pathology by a single internationally recognized expert from MD Anderson Cancer Center. It is limited to 17 attendees, so register now!

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.

USCAP Presents:
Challenges in Hematopathology

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..

USCAP Presents:
Dermatopathology in the Desert: Dodging Bullets in the Dermatopathology Wilderness

Differentiating neoplastic from non-neoplastic disorders is one of the most difficult diagnostic challenges in pathology. Accurate diagnosis is paramount to initiate the appropriate treatment. It requires specific skills which often include at least some degree of clinical knowledge, awareness of the broad morphologic range and familiarity with ancillary tests. Errors in the interpretation of skin biopsies, especially in relation to melanocytic tumours, are among the most frequent causes for litigation in surgical biopsy and can lead to unfavorable patient outcomes. There are numerous pitfalls that diagnostic pathologists need to be aware of, including lack of relevant clinical information, sampling error and the wide morphologic spectrum of both inflammatory and neoplastic disorders, often showing overlapping findings and only subtle differentiating features. This special course will elevate your knowledge and polish your diagnostic skills as you interact with experts in a uniquely intimate mentoring environment.
