An Update for Practicing Pathologists    Oct. 19-21, 2017

Held at Graduate Ann Arbor located in downtown Ann Arbor, MI.

This symposium is presented by the Department of Pathology, in conjunction with MLabs and the A. J. French Society/UMPAS and is intended to address the educational requirements for practicing pathologists, residents and fellows. Diagnostic problems in Anatomic Pathology will be identified and evaluated using current tools. At the end of this course, participants will have a better understanding of new methods of diagnosis using current tools and information technology; and will be able to implement new methods in their current practice.

The impact of discoveries in molecular medicine and bioinformatics and the application of information technology to improve pathology practice are highlighted in plenary lectures and breakout sessions. Case-based presentations using virtual microscopy will address complex diagnostic challenges.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of Michigan Medical School and A. James French Alumni Society of Pathology. The University of Michigan Medical School is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
