2023 A Practical Approach to Surgical Pathology: Volume IX


About This Activity

This CME activity was designed to provide a comprehensive review of some of the more common topics which are encountered by practicing surgical pathologists, including gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, genitourinary, gynecologic, breast, and soft tissue pathology.  The activity also provides an update and comprehensive overview of some of the most important diagnostic features which allow pathologists to make accurate diagnoses, as well as essential clues as to how to avoid the most common diagnostic pitfalls. The use of ancillary diagnostic techniques including both immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostics, which assist the pathologist in rendering a final diagnosis is discussed. 

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