College of American Pathologists Set to Transform the Profession


The College of American Pathologists (CAP) announced a new initiative at the September national meeting in San Diego entitled: The CAP Campaign for the Transformation of the Specialty of Pathology. A cornerstone of the campaign is the CAP's new certificate program to be launched in June '09 through the CAP Institute . The certificate program is designed to allow pathologists to earn time-limited certificates in broad areas of expertise not currently offered as a subspecialty board certification (such as breast pathology) as well as in narrow skill sets (such as ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration). Read more about all the efforts encompassed by the campaign here. Thanks to CAP House Delegate Doug Shevlin, MD (pictured on the right next to me on the left) who informed me about this exciting new initiative by the CAP.

Did you see that Seve Ballesteros has a "malignant brain tumor?" It was diagnosed as oligoastrocytoma. Could you enlighten us to the pathophysiology to this tumor?

Thanks Dr. Moore!

Hi Adam!
I will surely do a post on oligoastrocytoma early next week. Thanks for letting me know about Ballesteros.
