An Update for Practicing Pathologists    

This symposium is presented by the Department of Pathology, in conjunction with MLabs and the A. J. French Society 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.
