Learn Now CME: Advances in Cytopathology

This online CME program, led by Christopher J. VandenBussche, MD, PhD, is designed to improve the general pathologist’s understanding and confidence in the diagnosis of cytopathology specimens. Masters of Pathology Series – Cytopathology is divided by specimen type, with experts in each area sharing short, high-yield lectures. Additionally, editors of four major reporting systems participate in informal, podcast-type discussions of their systems with a pathologist. It’s continuing medical education that will help you to:

  • Gain familiarity with new reporting systems and the updates being made to existing systems
  • Compare methodologies and recognize cytomorphologic features
  • Generate standardized reports that are more useful clinically, and better understood by clinicians
  • Contribute to better patient outcomes and optimize patient care
