Conference Summary

The Brave New World of Head and Neck Pathology: Updates on the WHO and More is organized by United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) and will be held during Jun 02 - 03, 2018 at USCAP Interactive Center, Palm Springs, California, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Course Description:
This conference is represents a significant portion of surgical pathology practice. Studies have shown this area to be particularly treacherous for community pathologists, with up to 53% of diagnoses changed (including 7% with major changes) upon second review at tertiary care hospitals.

Complicating this inherent difficulty, there have been numerous recent developments in the field of head and neck pathology. Novel entities have been described, pathognomonic molecular alterations have been uncovered, and major shifts in diagnostic classification schemes have been proposed. Many of these concepts were incorporated into the newest editions of the WHO Classifications for Head and Neck and Endocrine Tumors, both of which were published this year.

This interactive microscopy course will help pathologists to stay up-to-date and maintain proficiency in head and neck pathology through an intimate mentoring experience with experts.

Course Objectives:
• Develop a diagnostic approach to the encapsulated follicular-patterned thyroid nodule
• Develop a diagnostic approach to the "small round blue cell" sinonasal tumor
• Describe the algorithmic approach to HPV testing in a head and neck cancer
• Recognize the updated WHO terminology of salivary gland carcinomas
• Recognize the appropriate WHO grading scheme for squamous dysplasia in the larynx

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
