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 attempts 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 FNAB with the equally important skills of communication and diagnosis, to prepare pathologists to respond competently to the escalating pressure to acquire diagnostic material for accurate diagnoses, predictive/prognostic information and targeted therapies. This is the immersive cytopathology experience.
