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.
At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be able to:
Identify and explain the most common discordances in diagnosis of melanocytic lesions and the impact on management
Recognize and identify potential pitfalls in histologic examination of staging parameters in melanoma
Examine and report the clinically relevant histopathologic parameters based on the 8th edition of AJCC staging system for cutaneous melanoma
