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.
