This course is designed to enhance career development of clinically trained individuals considering a career in investigative pathology. We have arranged for a special discounted fee for admission. Since the course content is directed toward residents, fellows and junior faculty, CME credit will not be available. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
Opportunities in pathology investigation have never been better. Recent developments in information technology, the sequencing of the human genome, and the advent of rational/targeted drug design put the pathologist at the center of a revolution in the classification and treatment of disease. These changes will take shape over the next few years in unfamiliar territory as collaborations between academia and industry. This course, designed for residents, fellows, and junior faculty, will present vignettes from the careers of successful investigative pathologists, along with their visions of current and future opportunities to in the field. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions of the panelists during an interactive panel discussion and after the course through an electronic message board.
