Course Description

The diagnosis of soft tissue and bone tumors can be a significant challenge (even for experienced pathologists) because of their rarity, the broad morphological spectrum of mesenchymal tumors, and overlap with other soft tissue tumors and non-mesenchymal neoplasms. The discovery of specific immunohistochemical markers and molecular genetic alterations drives the evolution of soft tissue tumor classification. If you are a surgical pathologist who struggles with accurate diagnosis of these challenging neoplasms, this is the course for you! Learn from experts in an intimate mentoring environment that simulates clinical sign out. The venue for interactive microscopy is exceptional, and Palm Springs in the winter is a premiere resort destination.

Course Objectives

      Refine skills in diagnosing a wide range of soft tissue and bone tumors
      Select appropriate panels of immunohistochemical markers for soft tissue and bone tumors
      Enhance interpretation of results of molecular genetic studies in the context of histology
        of soft tissue and bone tumors
