Discover New Guidelines with Pathology CME

This online CME course in molecular pathology – part of our Masters of Pathology Series – is extremely thorough, covering a range of hot topics and core concepts in the field aiming to facilitate detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Practical Molecular Pathology for the Surgical Pathologist, directed by Jason L. Hornick, MD, PhD, focuses on the latest molecular techniques, recently identified molecular genetic alterations in cancer, tissue triaging for molecular testing and more. It’s continuing medical education that will help you to better:

  • Identify molecular genetic alteration in a broad range of cancer types
  • Understand the implications of molecular genetic testing results for cancer therapy
  • Apply immunohistochemistry based on molecular genetic changes to classify tumors
  • Chemistry based on molecular genetic changes to classify tumors
  • Interpret the results and implications of PD-L1 immunohistochemistry and mismatch repair protein assessments
