Course Description

Gastrointestinal pathology emerged as a subspecialty in the early 1980s, roughly coincident with development of endoscopy and mucosal biopsy for diagnosis and management of patients with gastrointestinal disorders. At that time, a number of pathologists dedicated their efforts to recognizing and classifying patterns of disease based on careful morphologic assessment, unassisted by immunohistochemical and molecular techniques. Many of their observations and conclusions have held true for several decades underscoring their validity. These individuals have tremendous knowledge to share with learners at all stages in their careers, many of whom have come to rely heavily on ancillary tests to establish diagnoses rather than morphologic assessment. Pathologists must be able to hone-in on key features in order to narrow the differential diagnosis and facilitate patient management. This special Emeritus course concentrates on the pioneers in gastrointestinal pathology and their prophetic perspectives.
