Course Description
As a major clinical subspecialty, diagnostic gynecological pathology involves a large number of disease entities and often complex histological variants. Recent developments, particularly molecular genetic discoveries, have introduced new and reclassified entities as well as refined diagnostic criteria for many existing disease processes, calling for knowledge update for practicing pathologists. A comprehensive review course is essential and highly desirable. This unique course offers an engaged learning experience with world-class faculty delegated from the International Society of Gynecological Pathologists (ISGyP). While providing comprehensive coverage, the course emphasizes knowledge gains in morphologic recognition, using ancillary immunohistochemistry and molecular genetic studies in the most challenging areas, particularly new disease classifications/diagnostic criteria. 

Target Audience
Practicing academic and community pathologists, and pathologists-in-training

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this educational activity, learners will be able to:
  • Recognize updated diagnostic criteria and disease classifications in gynecological pathology
  • Recognize unusual but important gynecological disease entities
  • Apply immunohistochemical and molecular genetic studies for diagnosis and differential diagnoses
  • Understand the clinical applications when applying new diagnostic knowledge in gynecological pathology
