Objectives

To identify areas of diagnostic difficulties and challenges in everyday surgical pathology and cytopathology practice, and to provide expert insight on selected topics through didactic lectures, tutorial sessions and interactive reviews. The educational experience is further enhanced through a collegial contact and one on one interaction during the course. The topics selected this year reflect areas in which a substantial information and progress has been made as exemplified by the recent publication of guidelines for reporting of surgical specimens in various journals. The topics or discussions also focus on areas in which there is significant difficulty in interpretation of pathological features by the pathologist. In general terms, we expect that at the end of this course, the participants will be able to:

1. Identify common mistakes and pitfalls in the diagnosis of specific diseases in everyday surgical pathology

2. Recognize mimickers of specific diseases in each specialty and learn to interpret special studies that will allow easier differential diagnosis

3. Learn the pertinent histopathological characteristics of diseases in question that will allow unequivocal diagnosis

4. Identify new and additional components of the pathology report that will improve the clinical value of the pathology report.

5. Learn about the recent changes/modifications in the pathological classification of diseases or lesions
