4th Geisinger Seminar in Anatomic Pathology

Danville, PA US
September 15, 2023 to September 17, 2023

This is a hybrid educational activity.  

This conference will provide an update in diagnostic surgical pathology and immunohistochemistry (IHC), with a format of didactic lecture and case-based presentation, which will allow practicing anatomic pathologists to address their gaps in knowledge and become proficient in the application of diagnostic IHC in different subspecialities. Another gap to be addressed is recognizing newly described entities in different organs and working up a diagnostic challenging case in surgical specimens.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for General Surgical Pathologists, Pathology Fellows, and Residents. Other learner groups such as Pathologist Assistants, AP Management, GI Physicians would also benefit from this education. 

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • apply the best practice concept of using IHC in daily practice
