An Update for
Practicing Pathologists

Oct. 26-28, 2023

This symposium is presented by the Department of Pathology, in conjunction with MLabs, and is intended to address the educational requirements for practicing pathologists, residents, and fellows. The impact of discoveries in molecular medicine and bioinformatics and the application of information technology to improve pathology practice are highlighted in plenary lectures and breakout sessions. Case-based presentations using virtual microscopy will address complex diagnostic challenges.

At the end of this course, participants will have a better understanding of new methods of diagnosis using current tools and information technology and will be able to implement these in their daily practice.

The University of Michigan Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The University of Michigan Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 15.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The Enduring Legacy of Dr. Bertram Schnitzer

We would like to dedicate this year's conference to our lost colleague, Dr. Bertram “Bert” Schnitzer, internationally known leader in hematology and hematopathology, who passed away on November 12, 2019.  In his 51 years of service at the University of Michigan, Dr. Schnitzer presented over 140 courses, lectures, and workshops worldwide, published in Science and other prestigious journals, and taught countless residents and fellows, all done with a kind smile and cheerful attitude. Learn more about Dr. Schnitzer’s legacy here.

It is our hope to raise funds for an annual lectureship in Bert's name.



More Cases to Examine

As in years past, we will be going through several cases that will highlight some practical updates for pathologists. Get a sneak preview of the cases that will be covered during the conference and see how they might apply to your practice.
