Stay Current With Major Advances With This Concise Review

Gastrointestinal Pathology - Master of Pathology Series focuses on major changes in the practice of gastrointestinal pathology stemming from the progressive incorporation of immunohistochemical and molecular genetics techniques into the realm of surgical pathology. Led by a renowned Johns Hopkins pathologist, the program will significantly enhance your diagnostic skills in all areas of gastrointestinal pathology. The course is divided into neoplastic and nonneoplastic pathology of the tubular intestinal tract with major emphasis on interpreting biopsies. Fifteen state-of-the-art lectures will advance your knowledge in this rapidly evolving subspecialty.

The course will help you to better:

  • Discuss the most recent histopathological classifications of various gastrointestinal polyps and neoplasms currently recognized by the WHO in all areas of the gastrointestinal tract, including mesenchymal tumors.
  • Recognize multiple forms of nonneoplastic injury to the gastrointestinal tract, including iatrogenic injury, disorders of malabsorption, inflammatory bowel disease, and infectious conditions including sexually transmitted disease-associated injury to the anorectal area.
  • Decide what immunoreactions are most appropriate for validating the diagnosis of the main gastrointestinal tumors.
  • Describe the main molecular genetic alterations, which occur in key gastrointestinal tumors, and how that knowledge would help to determine future target therapies.
