Pathology Review Pulmonary, Neuro, and Hepatic Pathology for the General Pathologist Edusymp Course

About This CME Teaching Activity

This CME teaching activity is designed to provide a practical review of pulmonary pathology, neuropathology and hematopathology.  Basic to advanced techniques, pearls and pitfalls to pathologic diagnosis are included. Interactive case reviews emphasize the didactic lectures rounding out the program.

Target Audience

This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate pathologists.

  • Recognize glial and glioneuronal neoplasms.
  • Classify embryonal neoplasms of the CNS.
  • Explain meningioma grading.
  • Recognize peripheral nerve sheath tumors.
  • Discuss the WHO adenocarcinoma classification and implications for selection of targeted therapies.
  • Discuss pulmonary manifestations of autoimmune disease.
