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.
