AAPath 2024 Annual Meeting CME Program

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: The AAPath 2024 Annual Meeting is an other/blended (live and recorded) learning activity that provides educational activities designed to provide training and professional development for academic pathologists.

TARGET AUDIENCE: The live session presentations and discussions and recordings of such live sessions provide educational activities for four target audiences:

  • Chairs, Vice Chairs, and former Chairs (Senior Fellows) 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 medical schools; and
  • Faculty members and trainees (fellows, residents, and medical students) aspiring to these positions.

The target audience are 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.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES: The objective of the learning activity 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 that address educational needs in knowledge, competency, and performance:

1. ADMINISTRATION/LEADERSHIP: Developing and refining leadership skills, including well-being, for successfully administering an academic pathology department to meet the demands of the three departmental missions within an academic health system: medical education, practice, and research.
2. PATHOLOGY CONTENT/CURRICULUM and TRAINING/TEACHING STRATEGIES: Enhancing medical education content and faculty development are given priority to develop both the content and pedagogy for the identified gaps in the continuum from undergraduate and graduate medical education, as well as continuous medical education for practicing pathologists.
3. PRACTICE/MANAGEMENT: Strategies to sustain a department include addressing (a) the laboratory workforce with evolving technology and innovations in research infrastructure, (b) the training and development of faculty, staff, and trainees, (c) diverse learning styles and health disparities in patient populations, and (d) how to locally and nationally advocate for academic pathology

ACCREDITATION STATEMENT FOR CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION (CME): This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of American Society of Cytopathology (ASC) and the Association for Academic Pathology (AAPath). The ASC is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

CREDIT DESIGNATION STATEMENT: The ASC/AAPath designates this other/blended (live and recorded) educational activity for a maximum of 44.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
