The Pathology CP Conference is designed to provide both didactic teaching around current clinical pathology issues and interactive discussion of current issues confronting the clinical laboratories. Pathology residents are assigned current cases that illustrate important, problematic, or interesting issues in the particular Clinical Pathology Area in which they are rotating. Presentations are developed under the guidance of teaching faculty, and are designed to occupy one half of the one-hour time frame. These are intended to be highly interactive case presentations with a didactic portion that typically involves an in depth literature review. The second half of the conferences involves presentation of challenging on-call cases, with broad input from trainees and faculty regarding appropriate handling of such cases, including technical, reporting, medical, and laboratory management issues.
