This program offers one challenging case each month from the CAP Performance Improvement Program in Surgical Pathology (PIP) archives. For each case you will use a virtual microscope whole slide image (WSI) of a surgical specimen to diagnose diseases.

You will be presented with information on each case including:
   • specimen source
   • clinical history
   • laboratory findings
   • a representative whole slide image of the surgical specimen
 
After you complete each case, you will be provided a case summary with three multiple-choice questions that relate to the case.
Your input is valued - please submit your feedback so that we may continue to optimize this program.
