Program Description: 

This educational activity is designed to provide our faculty with alternative
sources of information and experience on controversial areas in diagnostic
pathology that cannot be gleaned from reading the literature or standard
textbooks in pathology.  There are many areas in pathology where a
uniformly acceptable standard has not yet been established.  Direct
interaction with an expert can provide the pathologist with additional
insight into more effective ways to handle the issue.

The need for this activity is to encourage residents/students in pursuing
careers in subspecialties of Pathology.  The Pathology Department Faculty
is made aware of outside studies and research through the presentation/
interaction with the invited guests.  Because this is an ongoing event, the
curriculum is reviewed and improvements are made by the Program
Planning Committee at its annual meeting, usually held in December. 
A list of speakers is generated with Pathology Department Faculty
inviting the participants.

The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the Accreditation
Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical
education for physicians.
