ICE: Immersive Cytopathology Experience
Pathologists are experiencing a transformative practice change from laboratory diagnosticians to clinical consultants at the center of patient care. This interactive course is designed to provide a real-world clinical training experience from the first encounter with the patient to quality assessment of the final integrated report, and is intended as a training in-depth snapshot of why cytopathology is essential and integral to patient-centered care.
The course integrates the procedural aspects of fine needle aspiration biopsy with the equally important skills of communication, empathy and diagnosis, to prepare pathologists to respond competently within the clinical sphere to escalating pressures to acquire diagnostic material for accurate diagnoses, predictive/prognostic information and targeted therapies. This is the immersive cytopathology experience.
