Course Description

This interactive microscopy course, taught by experts from Harvard Medical School, Stanford and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, is designed to eliminate a variety of practice gaps in diagnostic breast pathology.

In general, there is a misdiagnosis rate of about 10% in breast biopsies, which may be even higher for some notoriously problematic lesions. This course (through intimate mentoring) attempts to reduce or eliminate diagnostic error by highlighting pitfalls and illustrating practical approaches to resolve them, using routine microscopic examination of H&E-stained sections with appropriate ancillary testing. The intended outcome is improved clinical practice and patient outcomes.

Course Objectives

      Evaluate diagnostic criteria and clinical significance of various common and uncommon benign,
        in situ and malignant lesions of the breast
      Describe differential diagnostic problems commonly encountered in breast
        pathology and develop strategies to resolve them in the practice environment
      Utilize the latest information on the uses and limitations of immunohistochemistry
        in resolving diagnostic problems in breast pathology
