Immersive Cytopathology Experience: ICE in Iceland 2019

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

Immersive Cytopathology Experience (ICE) has been redesigned, combining concepts from Diagnostic Cytopathology and classical ICE (a hands-on learning experience at the USCAP Interactive Learning Center). This case-based learning program simulates multidisciplinary collaborative interaction of hospital-based tumor boards. This program is highlighted by the interaction of interventional cytopathologists with a surgeon, patient, and challenging cases from academic institutions, focusing on head and neck clinical lesions.

Classification schemes, the molecular and genetic basis of head and neck disease, procedural approaches to specimen acquisition and processing, empathetic communication, quality and patient safety, and measuring the non-clinical performance of the academic pathologist contribute texture and depth to this learning experience.

Target Audience

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

Learning Objectives

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

  • Utilize an exemplary index case and several expository cases from academic centers to understand relevant clinicopathologic diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of head and neck diseases
  • Understand morphologic, molecular, genetic and cytologic features of selected head and neck tumors and how they are classified
  • Refine skills for interaction with patients and clinicians, including empathetic communication and how the ideal interactive health care team operates
  • Refine skills for interaction with patients and clinicians, including empathetic communication and how the ideal interactive health care team operates
  • Explore how to optimize quality and patient safety with principals of root cause analysis, systems improvements, error reporting, disclosure and apology and scenario role play
  • Learn interventional skills related to ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy, rapid on site evaluation (ROSE) and optimal specimen preparation and triage.

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 16 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 14.5 SAM/Part II credit hours.
