Course Description

Practical Pathology Seminars is a USCAP gem that reprises several superlative short courses from Annual Meeting 2017 and introduces an exciting new one on thyroid. These courses represent relevant and diverse topics that are repeated to give comprehensive exposure to community practitioners (who might not have been able to attend the Annual Meeting) and pathologists-in-training. They will be recorded live at the USCAP Interactive Center studio and conference theater to create digital products in modular packets that can be accessed on demand, extending their informational life span and global availability. The highly-respected faculty provides a charismatic and contemporary look at diagnostic challenges in prostate pathology, non-invasive perplexing breast lesions, the varied patterns of soft tissue tumors, and the interaction of cytomorphology, architecture and molecular diagnostics in thyroid assessments.

Palm Springs is a desert oasis and world class resort destination that offers geography, culture, mid-century modern architecture, art, food, spirits, tennis, golf, and hiking. It is accessible by direct flights from about 17 domestic and Canadian cities and is located at an easy driving distance from Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix.

Still the play land for Hollywood stars, Palm Springs is becoming the haven for pathology rock stars!
