Course Description:
This program is designed for academic, community and private practitioners who embrace practice updates to sustain competency, currency and relevance. It is organized at USCAP’s Interactive Learning Center in Palm Springs, California during “modernism week”, an event which attracts international interest in midcentury modern architecture and design. The “play” on Modern Pathology, USCAP’s high-impact anatomic pathology journal, is timed to highlight transition in Editors-in-Chief with exposition of some highly-cited papers by selected authors whose presentations will be memorialized for exposure on USCAP and Springer Nature websites. The educational content varies from sessions on genomics, informatics and personalized medicine to interactive microscopy and “what’s hot in surgical pathology”. Registrants will have interactive experiences with stellar faculty from highly respected academic institutions, while being exposed to the art and architecture of the midcentury modernists. Palm Springs is a world-class resort destination, available to registrants at high season, who may take advantage of a sunrise hike, yoga and spin classes or golf, tennis, and culinary options. USCAP is transforming not only how we learn but where we learn. This is an exceptional course with a panorama of new information.

Course Objectives:
• Understand fundamental concepts in molecular pathology, including their role in surgical pathology diagnoses and what pathologists should be able to communicate to clinicians
• Become conversant with informatics concepts that modern pathologists should know
• Improve diagnostic skills when assessing surgical specimens by interactive mentoring at multi-head microscopes with established experts in subspecialty areas, referencing new information in genetics and molecular pathology
• Comprehend and be able to communicate the clinical relevance of pathology in the era of personalized medicine
• Maximize peer-reviewed published papers as a resource for practice excellence
