Gynecologic Pathology:
New entities and new approaches to old problems

Program Overview

This year’s program, Gynecologic Pathology: New entities and new approaches to old problems, aims to provide practical reviews of recently described entities and contemporary approaches to commonly encountered diagnostically challenging areas of gynecologic pathology. In addition to expert faculty from University of Toronto, Dr. Brooke Howitt from Stanford University and Dr. Blake Gilks from University of British Columbia, will provide current perspectives in diagnostic criteria and classification, clinical correlation and ancillary studies. Highlights include updates on the classification of vulvar, cervical and endometrial carcinoma, judicious use of ancillary studies and how to deal with the intraoperative consultation.
