What's New in Anatomic Pathology and Laboratory Medicine - May 1

Recently, there has been an increasing interest in the field to develop classification schemes or other guidelines to aid in the identification of specific conditions. These classification schemes or guidelines have been developed by committees of experts and most pathologists are not familiar with the specific recommendations, making it difficult to apply to practice. This conference is intended to address the identified learning gaps and provide pathologists the tools necessary to comply with the current standards of practice. It will be held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 30, and Saturday, May 1, in Harvey Morse Auditorium.
