Gastrointestinal Pathology – Master of Pathology Series focuses on major changes in the practice of gastrointestinal pathology stemming from the progressive incorporation of immunohistochemical and molecular genetics techniques into the realm of surgical pathology. Led by a renowned Johns Hopkins pathologist, the program will significantly enhance your diagnostic skills in all areas of gastrointestinal pathology. The course is divided into neoplastic and nonneoplastic pathology of the tubular intestinal tract with major emphasis on interpreting biopsies. Fifteen state-of-the-art lectures will advance your knowledge in this rapidly evolving subspecialty.
