80041254 - Stars of the American Registry of Pathology Fascicles; Past, Present and Future, in Partnership with Johns Hopkins Pathology


Date & Location
Saturday, May 20, 2017 7:00 AM - Wednesday, May 24, 2017 2:00 PM   Chevy Chase Bank Conference Center, JHH, Baltimore, MD

Overview
DESCRIPTION
Pathologists must confront ever changing classifications of neoplasms and newer treatments that are based on molecular mechanisms of diseases. Areas in which the field of medicine is changing revolve around lung tumors, soft tissue tumors, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, ovarian tumors, and pancreas neoplasms. Drawing on the expertise of past, present, and future Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP)/ American Registry of Pathology (ARP) fascicle authors in partnership with Johns Hopkins Pathology, topics of interest to general pathologists will be presented. Discussions will feature soft tissue tumors, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, ovarian, pancreatic, and lung tumors. Additionally, there will be a discussion of Barrett’s esophagus and neoplasia incorporating 2016 guidelines from the American College of Gastroenterology, a discussion of stomach polyps, and a review of breast spindle cell lesions. This weekend update should be of interest to general surgical pathologists and pathology residents and fellows.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for pathologists and pathology residents.
