Chicago Saturday Slide Club - February 2017

Chicago, IL US
February 25, 2017
Join us at The University of Chicago for our first Saturday session 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 session will address challenges in breast pathology, including correlation with imaging and clinical management. We will focus on frozen section, cytological and surgical pathological diagnostic dilemmas. 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 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 6 hours of SAM credit.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed for physicians and other allied health professionals within the pathology specialty.

Learning Objectives
