FRM F131 - Dermatopathology Made Simple

Open admission to eligible categories, no tuition or ticket


Date: Monday, March 04

CME Credits: 2.00

Location: Flamingo 3

Time: 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Director: Christine Ko, MD, FAAD - Handout

Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify important features at low power.
  • Formulate a differential diagnosis from the low power view of a specimen.
  • Predict and recognize findings at higher power that narrow the differential.

This session is aimed at residents in training. A main focus is visual perception in dermatopathology (how we see or don't see). A quick overview of over 150 different entities in dermatopathology emphasizes the low-power impression of a slide as the starting point. From the initial impression, features at higher magnification that lead to the correct diagnosis are highlighted.
