2018 Annual Meeting

Intuitive, fundamental, and indispensable, interactive microscopy is a structural core process at the heart of USCAP and the mentoring relationship. All eyes on the same lesion, all minds on diagnostic possibilities, translate to a communal consciousness of reasoning, cognitive thinking and communication. Sharing a microscope with a seasoned expert initiates a personalized mentoring relationship that simulates clinical sign out and recalls the formative stages of pathology training. Through dialogue and visual analysis, diagnostic and communicative skills are refined.

Interactive Microscopy at the USCAP Annual Meeting is defined by a 1.5-hour experience at a ten-head teaching microscope shared by a subspecialty authority and nine enthusiastic learners. Focused topics generate in-depth perspectives on detailed entities.

Forty-eight sessions, Monday through Thursday, are organized in daily blocks of three concurrent but diverse topics.

Choose what interests you, what makes you better at what you do, what satisfies your curiosity. Take more than one. Create your own tutorial. Grow your imagination. Get motivated by knowing that at USCAP, personalized medicine begins with personalized education.
