Chicago Saturday Slide Club - February 2016
Join us at The University of Chicago for a Saturday series of dynamic learning and interactive microscopy sessions designed for practicing surgical pathologists and senior trainees. A two-year curriculum has been developed to address each subspecialty in anatomic pathology. The focus will be updates on existing entities, descriptions of new diagnoses, and pearls to avoid pitfalls. Through a guided microscopic tour, this inaugural session will address challenges in general surgical pathology and the diagnostic criteria required to overcome them. To make the discussions more meaningful, cases will be posted on our website prior to the session for preview. They will be presented by faculty and discussed with participants in an interactive manner. Participants are encouraged to bring their own challenging cases to share with the group. References will be provided after the event. Additionally, post-discussion questions will be administered for an opportunity to earn SAM credit. Continental breakfast, coffee, lunch, and parking are included in the registration fee of $150 per session ($50 for trainees). Space at the multiheaded microscope is limited to the first fifteen, so reserve your seat today!
This activity has been designed for physicians and other allied health professionals within the pathology specialty.
At the conclusion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:
- Diagnose challenging surgical pathology cases in the sub-specialties of breast, soft tissue, lung, and genito-urinary systems;
- Construct appropriate panels of immunohistochemical stains to arrive at the correct diagnoses in challenging surgical pathology cases;
- Use results from relevant molecular techniques to further refine the diagnoses of challenging surgical pathology cases to provide pertinent prognostic and therapeutic information in their reports;
- Discuss the new WHO classification and grading systems of tumors and how to incorporate them in their final reports.
