Digital Pathology Association Offers Five Continuing Medical Education Credits at Pathology Visions 2014
The Digital Pathology Association (DPA), a non-profit organization comprised of pathologists, scientists, technologists and representatives from the industry that facilitates education and awareness of digital pathology applications, is offering 5 continuing medical education (CME) credits at the annual conference, Pathology Visions, to take place October 20 – 21, 2014 in San Francisco, California.
Pathology Visions 2014 will cover a broad range of topics relevant to digital pathology. Digital pathology is growing rapidly as a method of viewing microscopic glass slides virtually. It encompasses the steps of scanning, interpretation, manipulation, analysis, distribution and management. Digital images can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including but not limited to education, evaluation and research.
At Pathology Visions 2014, the DPA will offer workshops to bring attendees the most cutting-edge educational content, and will offer CME credits for those in attendance. Pathology Visions has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the Indiana State Medical Association (ISMA) and the Digital Pathology Association. The ISMA is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. All education formats are 1.5 and 2 hour workshops.
