This program offers one challenging case each month from the CAP Performance Improvement Program in Surgical Pathology. For each case, you will use a virtual microscope whole slide image of a surgical specimen to diagnose diseases.
You will be presented with information on each case including: specimen source, clinical history, laboratory findings, and a representative whole slide image of the surgical specimen. After you complete each case, you will receive a case summary with three multiple-choice questions that relate to the case.
