This CME teaching activity has been designed to provide a comprehensive review of key topics in surgical pathology, including gastrointestinal, orthopedic, pulmonary, breast, head and neck, and gynecologic pathology. The activity provides an update and an extensive overview of the most important diagnostic features allowing practicing pathologists to make an accurate diagnosis, as well as important clues as to how to avoid the most common pitfalls resulting in diagnostic error. Faculty discuss appropriate diagnostic immunohistochemical and molecular tests which help to serve as diagnostic adjuncts.

Target Audience 

This CME activity is primarily designed to educate practicing pathologists.
