2020 Annual Meeting Long Course – Major Advances in the Diagnosis and Management of Breast Diseases

What it USCAP ?

The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, abbreviated USCAP, is the largest North American organization of pathologists. It is the publisher to two major pathology journals, Laboratory Investigation and Modern Pathology.

Course Description

Diagnostic breast pathology has become increasingly complex with the recognition of novel molecular subtypes of breast cancer dictating differing therapeutic strategies; the prospect of de-escalation of therapy in patients with ductal carcinoma in situ; the expansion of morphologic patterns of lobular carcinoma in situ; the ongoing challenge of accurate categorization of papillary and fibroepithelial lesions; the move toward fewer surgical excisions following diagnoses of benign and atypical lesions on core needle biopsy and the panoply of immunohistochemical stains and ancillary molecular tests available to corroborate diagnoses and guide neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy. The purpose of this course is to provide practicing pathologists with an updated framework for diagnosing breast lesions, both commonly and less commonly encountered in daily practice. Some of the top experts in the field will present their approach to these challenges, as well as provide information on the latest guideline recommendations and management strategies.

Target Audience

Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, learners will be able to:

  • Update current knowledge on recent advances in diagnostic breast pathology
  • Recognize the ramifications of pathologic diagnoses in light of evolving management strategies
  • Understand the molecular underpinnings of breast tumors and their associated therapeutic impact


Continuing Medical Education and Continuing Certification

The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology designates this enduring material for a maximum of 4 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

USCAP is approved by the American Board of Pathology (ABPath) to offer Self-Assessment credits (SAMs) and Lifelong Learning (Part II) credit for the purpose of meeting the ABPath requirements for Continuing Certification (CC). Registrants must take and pass the post-test in order to claim SAMs credit. Physicians can earn a maximum of 4 SAM/Part II credit hours.
