| December 6, 2009

5 – 9 April 2010, Hyatt Regency Hotel
Bethesda, Maryland

This impressive course covers general and specialized areas of anatomic pathology. An intensive session in inflammatory, infectious, and tumor-related diseases, this five-day course reviews all fields in surgical pathology, cytology and forensics. Renowned experts from all of AFIP's many departments will be teaching in every sub-specialty from vast experience in international consultation, large research studies and international continuing medical education programs.

Unique to this course are the 500+ cases that participants will review. These slides are chosen from AFIP's compilation of material dating back to 1916, which is continually reviewed and renewed by the organization's experts. Attendees can review classic and complex anatomic pathology slides and test themselves on the diagnoses during the course. Highlights of this course include:

  • 40 hours of lectures.
  • 25 hours of microscope time
  • 65 AMA Category 1 credits
  • Entire revised course syllabus available on CD
  • The only anatomic course with exceptional slides to self-review AND microscopes provided
  • Computer access to digital slides for one year following the course through our online educational platform,

AFIP received a six-year accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). This is the highest mark that any ACCME-accredited provider can attain, and less than 1% of the several hundred providers nationwide receive this honor. This is a true testament to the quality of our program. We encourage everyone to take advantage of our expertise for the advancement of their own career, and to make a difference in the civilian and military medical community.
