Objectives

The principal objective of this activity is to identify areas of diagnostic difficulties and challenges in everyday surgical pathology and cytopathology practice, and to provide expert insight on selected topics through different educational formats. Educational experience is further enhanced through a collegial contact and one on one interaction throughout the course. The topics selected each year reflect areas in which substantial information and progress has been made (as identified through recent publications and other data gathering efforts). The topics of discussion also focus on areas in which there is significant difficulty in interpretation of pathological features. 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 (see above for specific diseases in the current course) 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 to allow unequivocal diagnosis.
4. Identify new and additional components of the pathology report that will improve its clinical value.
5. Learn about the recent changes/modifications in the pathological classification of diseases or lesions.
6. Understand how they can be more helpful to the clinicians or surgeons in the management of patients with these diseases.
