The Osler Institute utilized state-of-the-art equipment to record our Live Virtual Webinar August 2023  comprehensive Cytology Review Course and bring it to you!  These files are stored “in the cloud,” so you can stream them anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection and watch or listen to them on your phone or computer.  As a result, the learning experience is almost like being at a live activity without travel costs and time away from your practice.  In addition, each online review is a downloadable copy of the syllabus corresponding to the Video lectures for your use while viewing or as a free-standing study or clinical practice guide.

This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge base and help you pass your Cytopathology exams (certifying or CC).  Emphasis is on evidence-based practice and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating new concepts and testing strategies as well as quality control and laboratory management techniques to help you hone your diagnostic and consulting skills.  Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and evaluation skills and helped them recognize specific areas of weakness for self-study.
