Core Didactic Sessions

The core didactic curriculum is organized as daily 7:30 AM lectures, Tuesday through Friday, for the majority of the academic year, up to two CP and two AP sessions each week. Both the AP and CP curricula are designed to provide a comprehensive, biannually repeating exposure to the entire spectrum of AP and CP content areas. CP lectures are organized either as traditional PowerPoint-based didactic lectures or as structured interactive discussion sessions. AP sessions in most cases are organized as topical slide reviews with interactive discussion around a multi-headed microscope. The intent of the AP microscope sessions is to ensure resident exposure to essentially the entire range of neoplastic and non-neoplastic surgical pathology cases, including rarely encountered entities.
