  New FNA glass slide program


CAP Today




January 2010
PAP/NGC Programs Review

Pathologists and cytotechnologists can earn 10 CME or CE credits per year by participating in a new CAP educational glass slide program.

It consists exclusively of FNA cases with combinations of slide types similar to clinical practice including Papanicolaou with modified Giemsa or cell block material, or both. In addition to receiving the glass slide kits with five cases per year, there will be online enhancements consisting of static images, radiologic information, and ancillary studies to help participants arrive at a final diagnosis in each case.

Order early—only the first 200 laboratories can be accommodated. The first shipment will arrive in June. To order or for more information, see page 200 of the 2010 Surveys catalog online at, or call the CAP at 800-323-4040 or 847-832-7000.
