New Concepts for Your Clinical Practice

This online CME program is designed to improve the general pathologist’s understanding and confidence in the diagnosis of cytopathology specimens. The course is divided by specimen type, with experts in each area sharing short, high-yield lectures. Additionally, editors of four major reporting systems participate in informal, podcast-type discussions of their systems with a pathologist. Masters of Pathology Series – Cytopathology will help you to:

  • Gain familiarity with new reporting systems and the updates being made to existing systems
  • Compare methodologies and recognize cytomorphologic features
  • Generate standardized reports that are more useful clinically, and better understood by clinicians
  • Contribute to better patient outcomes and optimize patient care

Expand Your Skills

Available online, Cytopathology provides a maximum of 24 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and access to unbiased, evidence-based content and case-based reviews so you can expand your knowledge and incorporate the latest guidelines into your daily practice.
