Subscribers to the CAP Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Cervicovaginal Cytopathology will be able to choose a new module in 2005.

The PAPJ module will contain all three Pap slide technologies currently used in cytopathology. The educational slide sets will contain a slide combination consisting of, for example, two ThinPrep slides, two conventional Pap slides, and one SurePath slide. The graded slide sets will consist of conventional slides. Participants will be able to review cases reflecting Pap technologies used in their labs without having to subscribe to multiple programs. You can choose this module during the CAP's Surveys and Anatomic Pathologic Education Programs 2005 order renewal period.

Dr. Hamele-Bena is assistant professor of pathology and director of the cytology laboratory, Dr. Richart is vice chairman of anatomic pathology, and Teri Wood is manager of the cytology laboratory at Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY.
