The Pathology of Neoplastic Diseases

The purpose of this course is to review in depth selected topics in the pathology of neoplastic diseases, with an emphasis on clinical features, diagnostic criteria including the use of novel diagnostic modalities when applicable, prognostic factors, and assessment of therapy-related factors.

Participants will learn the current classifications and diagnostic criteria for tumors and tumor-like lesions of the selected subspecialty areas, including both common and unusual entities. The appropriate use of ancillary diagnostic techniques will be highlighted. Complete differential diagnoses will be discussed, and a practical, problem-oriented approach to the pathologic evaluation of specimens will be emphasized. Participants will learn about the clinical features of the various tumor entities along with pathologic and molecular prognostic factors and predictors of therapeutic responsiveness.


This course is directed primarily to pathologists and other affiliated healthcare professionals.
