Physicians Can Earn A Maximum Of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
Physicians Can Earn A Maximum Of 15 SAM Credit Hours
Many pathologists are unfamiliar with a variety of entities in lung, pleural, mediastinal and transplant pathology. The potential for diagnostic error in these areas relates to inexperience from restricted exposure or caseload. Drs. Tazelaar and Churg’s interactive microscopy course with an expert faculty is designed to close this practice gap by providing a comprehensive but detailed look at fibrosing interstitial pneumonias, pulmonary vasculitis, and some forms of pulmonary infection; benign and malignant mesotheliomas; thymomas and other mediastinal lesions; pulmonary tumors using cytology; and lung/heart/liver transplant rejection and their mimics. The simulated sign-out format confers a mentoring opportunity for interactive learning, promoting dialogue and exchange of criteria, common challenges, and differential diagnoses. The ultimate goal is the optimization of patient outcomes.
