About the Meeting
This seminar has been designed to provide an extensive overview of some of the most common areas encountered by practicing surgical pathologists, including hepatobiliary, genitourinary, gynecologic, breast, and soft tissue pathology. The course will provide an overview of some of the most important diagnostic features which allow pathologists to make accurate diagnoses in each of these areas, as well as how to assess essential clues and avoid misdiagnosis. There will also be a thorough discussion on the use of ancillary diagnostic techniques, including both immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostics. There will be sufficient time for interactive discussions between all of the faculty members and participants.

Target Audience
This CME activity is primarily designed to educate practicing pathologists.
