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.

The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this Live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s) ™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
