Oakstone CME Current Topics in Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology

Comprehensive, Convenient Gastrointestinal Pathology CME

Under the direction of renowned pathologist Lysandra Voltaggio, MD, Current Topics in Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology speakers discuss recent advances in pancreatic and biliary pathology.

Through recorded lectures, slide seminars, and Q&A sessions, you’ll gain a better understanding of interpretation of mucosal biopsies, liver biopsies, pancreatic/biliary disorders and the application of modern techniques to gastrointestinal disorders.

This online CME program covers molecular pathology, gastric cancer mimickers, gastric intestinal metaplasia, consultation and diagnostic pitfalls, application of cell-free DNA, hepatocellular carcinoma, unusual and unexpected colon polyps, medication effects, pancreatic cancer variants, and more.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Recognize the major histological types of gastric cancer and the variants with clinical relevance
  • Recognize the spectrum of benign/reactive lesions that mimic gastric cancer and its precursor lesions
  • Discuss current practice guidelines in management of gastric intestinal metaplasia
  • Recognize relevant pathologic features that are necessary for decision making in selecting treatment options of early gastric cancer
  • Identify helpful diagnostic features on selected challenging cases from the Gl consultation service
  • Name the current clinical utility of cell-free DNA in the characterization of gastrointestinal malignancies
  • Distinguish between neuroendocrine neoplasms and other non-neoplastic lesions and neoplasms that can mimic neuroendocrine neoplasms
  • Describe the special stains that aid in the histologic diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma
  • Discuss how single cell RNA sequencing and other molecular advances deepen our understanding of “normal” human intestinal crypt niche homeostasis and injury responses across anatomic segments
  • Recognize basic histologic pattern of the most common liver diseases
  • Discuss when colon polyps may be linked to polyposis syndromes
  • Describe medication effects that can mimic gastrointestinal diseases
  • Identify the clinically significant distinct variants of pancreatic cancer

Intended Audience

This activity is intended for community pathologists, gastrointestinal specialists, hepatologists and gastrointestinal and hepatology fellows and residents.

Cost: $895
