This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge base as well as to help you pass your Pathology AP and/or CP exams (Certifying or Continuing Certification). 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 skills. Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with 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 covers Anatomical Pathology Topics. Tuesday through Friday lectures covers Clinical Pathology Topics. Wednesday is an overlap day and contains both Anatomic as well as Clinical Pathology topics scattered throughout the day.
The webinar will be delivered using Zoom Cloud Meetings, allowing interaction between you and the faculty. To take part in the webinar you need a computer with a good internet connection. With this online webinar course, you get the best of both worlds – the comfort and safety of your own home or offices with 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 May 19, 2021.
