Chicago Saturday Slide Club - September 2017

Chicago, IL US
September 23, 2017
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 session will address challenges in practice of hematopathology 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.
