2015 Practical Pathology Seminars

Course Description

Your weekend in beautiful southern California will stimulate your imagination, enhance your knowledge base and make you a better pathologist.  This respected faculty will describe the most current features of head and neck pathology (emphasizing HPV-associated head and neck carcinoma, salivary gland neoplasia, and the interventionist approach to ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy in a patient centered practice), practical dermatopathology,  and challenges in gastrointestinal pathology and liver diseases, culminating in diagnostic dilemmas  community practice pathologists face in genitourinary pathology.  There is time to enjoy the remarkable resort hotel, fine dining, night life and geography.  Give yourself the USCAP experience.   


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


The USCAP designates this live activity for a maximum of 15 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


The USCAP is committed to assisting its members with meeting their American Board of Pathology (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements for Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) credits.  Participants in the 2015 Practical Pathology Seminars may earn 15 SAMs credits.


After attending the Practical Pathology Seminars, participants should be better able to:


  • Comprehend and integrate fundamental concepts of molecular pathology as an adjunct to surgical and cytopathology for direct patient care
  • Understand the relationship of HPV infection to the development of head and neck squamous cancers
  • Review the spectrum of salivary gland abnormalities detected in aspiration biopsies and surgical samples
  • Understand the role of the interventional cytopathologist in head and neck diagnosis and the development of patient-centered practices
  • Survey the clinicopathologic aspects of cutaneous diseases with concentration on focused insights
  • Expound upon contemporary diagnostic entities and criteria of gastrointestinal tract lesions derived from practical experience
  • Contrast medical diseases of the liver with selected neoplastic entities
  • Unravel diagnostic dilemmas in genitourinary pathology to discover clarified criteria and differentials
