This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge base and help you pass your Pathology AP and CP exams (Certifying or Continuing Certification). Emphasis is on evidence-based practice and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating new concepts, testing strategies, quality control, and laboratory management skills. Many of our previous participants found the course improved diagnostic and evaluation skills and helped them recognize specific weaknesses for further self-study. The course includes didactic lectures with review questions at the end of each topic, an esyllabus (containing all PowerPoint® presentations), and designated Q&A sessions covering Blood Bank procedures and Clinical Chemistry. Saturday through Tuesday, lectures cover Anatomical Pathology Topics. Tuesday through Friday, lectures cover Clinical Pathology Topics. Wednesday is an overlap day and contains both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology topics scattered throughout the day.
The webinar will be delivered using Zoom Cloud Meetings, allowing interaction between you and the faculty. It would be best to have a computer with a good internet connection to participate in the webinar. With this online webinar course, you get the best of both worlds – the comfort and safety of your home or offices and the chance to learn from the Osler Faculty and your peers. All participants will receive complimentary streaming access to a recording of the course up to TBA
