This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge base and help you pass your Cytopathology exams (certifying or MOC). 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.
