Chicago Saturday Slide Club-January 2018

Chicago, IL US
January 27, 2018
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 overall focus will be updates on existing entities, descriptions of new diagnoses, and pearls to avoid pitfalls. Through a guided microscopic tour, the January 2018 session will address common diagnostic challenges in thoracic and neuropathology, as well as how to integrate clinically relevant molecular data into surgical pathology reports. 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.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed for physicians and other healthcare professionals in the field of pathology.
