Activity Overview 

Activity Description

The APC 2021 Online Learning Program is an on demand, online-based, enduring activity that provides a compilation of recorded presentations designed to provide training and professional development for academic pathologists.

Target Audience

The recordings of presentations synchronized with audio provide educational online activities for four target audiences:

  • Chairs and Vice Chairs of academic departments of pathology and laboratory medicine;
  • Program Directors and Associate Program Directors of pathology residency training programs;
  • Medical student educators of pathology in accredited medical schools; and
  • Faculty members aspiring to these positions.

The target audience is professionals (MD, DO, PhD) and others who serve as the academic, medical, scientific, and administrative leaders of departments of pathology and laboratory medicine in the United States and Canada.

Method of Participation

If all presentations are viewed, this activity will take approximately 25 hours. The presentations are grouped into thematic topics for ease of viewing relevant presentations. Learners must:

  1. Review the materials on accreditation information, target audience, learning objectives, and disclosure information (this "Overview" tab/webpage).
  2. View the recorded presentations of interest, if not all (the "Presentations" tab/webpage).
  3. Track CME learning on the "CME Tracker" worksheet printable as a PDF.
  4. Upon final completion of viewing presentations, claim CME credit by transferring the hours, evaluations, and notes from the "CME Tracker" to APC's online CME Evaluation form (available by July 28), accessible only by enrolled participants. 

Hardware/Software Requirements

The recorded presentations are linked as mp4 video files or MS PowerPoint files, which can open in any modern browser, computer, and mobile device. 

Educational Objectives

The objective of the online recorded presentations is to facilitate knowledge acquisition to enable departments to fulfill their missions in teaching, clinical service, and research. Content focuses on issues in three broad areas: 

  1. ADMINISTRATION/LEADERSHIP: Developing leadership skills for successfully administering a medical school pathology department to meet the demands of their three missions within an academic health system: medical education, research, and practice.
  2. PATHOLOGY CONTENT/CURRICULUM and TRAINING/TEACHING METHODS: Integrating fundamentals and content in pathology and laboratory medicine based on national standards and best practices for teaching and learning.
  3. PROFESSIONAL/FACULTY DEVELOPMENT: Advocating for the professional development of pathology educators and pathologists, both as teachers to students and as professional resources to clinicians and patients, including topics on professionalism, wellness, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Upon completion of this activity, learners should be able to:

  • Develop leadership skills unique to academic pathology to manage and balance the three missions of a pathology department: education, research, and practice.
  • Utilize national standards, competencies, and requirements to provide a systematic approach in teaching and learning, including evaluations by quality assessments.
  • Identify and obtain appropriate professional development opportunities for faculty educators to enhance their teaching abilities and professionalism.

Needs Assessment with Practice Gaps

The APC 2021 Online Learning Program provides educational activities to increase skills, knowledge, and professional performance of pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals. It meets the participants' educational needs primarily in the ABMS/ACGME competency area of Medical Knowledge, but also in the Competency areas of Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, and Systems-Based Practice. Other Competency areas include: 1) educating medical students for the appropriate use of pathology and laboratory medicine in any specialty practice; 2) training residents and fellows to effectively and innovatively practice pathology; 3) sustaining patient access to laboratory services through practice administration and advocacy; and 4) preparing pathologists and lab professionals to participate in or lead research opportunities. These educational gaps were identified based primarily on planning committee discussions, ACGME Competences, IOM reports, AAMC survey data and reports, and feedback from prior participants.

Accreditation Statement

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Association of Pathology Chairs (APC). The University of California San Diego School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Participants should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Credit Designation Statement

The University of California San Diego School of Medicine designates this enduring material for a maximum of 25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Cultural Competency

This activity is in compliance with California Assembly Bill 1195 which requires CME courses with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competencies. Cultural competency is defined as a set of integrated attitudes, knowledge, and skills that enables health care professionals or organizations to care effectively for patients from diverse cultures, groups, and communities. Linguistic competency is defined as the ability of a physician or surgeon to provide patients who do not speak English or who have limited ability to speak English, direct communication in the patient's primary language. Cultural and Linguistic Competency was incorporated into the planning of this activity. Additional resources on cultural and linguistic competency and information about AB1195 can be found at the UC San Diego CME website at http://cme.ucsd.edu or on UCSD's resource list on cultural competencies.
