April 13-14, 2015 | DoubleTree Hotel | Rochester, MN


CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION

Diagnostic Molecular Pathology is currently regarded as a fundamental element of surgical pathology. Excellent oncologic care requires that practicing surgical pathologists understand molecular testing platforms, results, and clinical significance. This comprehensive case-based conference will prepare its attendees for both common and uncommon clinical scenarios where molecular testing should be applied in a cost- and time-effective manner.

Subspecialties of anatomic pathology covered in this two-day conference include head and neck pathology, gastrointestinal pathology, lung pathology, breast pathology, neuropathology, genitourinary pathology, gynecologic pathology, and hematopathology.


INTENDED AUDIENCE

This program is designed for practicing surgical and molecular pathologists, and other medical laboratory scientists or physicians interested in enhancing their delivery of care.


  • Identify clinical scenarios where molecular testing is appropriate—and inappropriate
  • Discuss fundamental features of molecular testing platforms
  • Interpret molecular test results
  • Explain the clinical significance of molecular test results
