  Autopsy Pathology (AU, AU1,
  AUCD, AUCD1)

 

 

 

Updated December 5, 2005

Each of two shipments of Survey AU will include six challenging autopsy cases, each consisting of a case description and illustrative 35mm gross and/or microscopic slides, with questions directed at aspects of interpretive analysis, differential diagnosis, pathophysiology, cause of death, and quality assurance. In addition, each case will include a summary slide highlighting the key teaching points of the case. Survey AU1 will include only a Result Form and CME form for an additional pathologist within the same institution. To provide participants with immediate feedback, the detailed discussions with current references will be included in the original mailing.

Each shipment of Survey AUCD will include the same six cases as above, but instead of 35mm slides, the images will be provided on a CD-ROM. Survey AUCD1 will include only a Result Form and CME form for an additional pathologist within the same institution. To provide participants with immediate feedback, the detailed discussions with current references will be included in the original mailing.

Pathologists can earn a maximum of 12 CME credits (Category 1) for completion of an entire year. For those institutions with multiple pathologists interested in participating and obtaining their own CME credit, the AU1 and AUCD1 options are available.

Both Surveys AU and AUCD are designed for educational purposes and are not suitable for proficiency testing.
