GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROGRAM
The overall goal of this program is to provide participants with new information both at the investigative and applied practice level and to reinforce and update their knowledge in their area of interest and expertise. Concomitant with this is the introduction of topics of particular intellectual and professional interest to pathologists. This varied program is planned to meet the educational objectives that mature professionals can set for themselves and to serve the needs of pathologists of various levels of experience from residents and fellows to the well established and expert investigator and practitioner. Specifically, to meet these goals and objectives, it provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of advances in the understanding of pathologic processes and for the presentation and critical evaluation of the application of scientific, technological and methodological advances.
