Learn the Latest: Advances in Cytopathology CME

This online CME program, led by Christopher J. VandenBussche, MD, PhD, focuses on recent developments in modern diagnostic cytopathology and reviews important cytopathology concepts according to specimen type. It's geared towards those who may not have formal cytopathology training, covering classic cytomorphology, common pitfalls, and updates on reporting systems such as The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology.

 

In Masters of Pathology Series – Cytopathology, experts present short, high-yield continuing medical education lectures that help you to:

  • Identify ancillary lung specimen tests needed when a new diagnosis of non-small cell carcinoma is made
  • Describe changes in the newest version of The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology
  • Understand situations in which a SUMP diagnosis can be made
  • Recognize the cytomorphologic features of common bone and soft tissue tumors on fine needle aspiration
  • Compare different methodologies used for HPV testing
  • And more…
