Why CPC Matters So Much in Dermatopathology

Sunday, March 18, 2018, 7:30 - 10:30 PM

Session Credits:

3 CME and 3 SAMs

Moderator:

Meera Mahalingam, MD, PhD, FRCPath, VA Integrated Systems Networks, New England

Course Description:

Dermatopathology is different from other specialties in pathology in that what the pathologist sees has to "fit" with the clinical presentation. In the absence of a clinical history, the diagnosis rendered by the pathologist can be incorrect. The topic presented will present the relevance of CPC from the perspective of dermatopathologists with a primary training in dermatology (WBF,RE) as well as those with a primary training in pathology (JPC,AR,MM).

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this educational activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Describe the relevance of CPC in dermatopathology
  • Identify tools of utility in dermatopathology as diagnostic adjuncts
  • Identify the relevance of the above in everyday practice
