A Practical Approach to Surgical and Cytopathology Vol. III - A Video CME Teaching Activity

About This CME Teaching Activity
This CME activity has been designed to provide a very practical yet comprehensive review of gastrointestinal, genitourinary, breast, pulmonary and gynecologic pathology. It includes an overview of diagnostic pearls leading to an accurate diagnosis as well as how to best avoid diagnostic pitfalls. Integrated throughout the program in an overview of diagnostic immunohistochemical and molecular genetic techniques describing their clinical benefits and pitfalls.
Target Audience
This CME Teaching Activity is primarily designed to educate practicing pathologists.
