CME Group, February 2009
Surgical Pathology for the Practicing Pathologist provides a comprehensive review of selected areas in surgical pathology with special attention paid to common diagnostic problems.
Maintenance of Certification
The curriculum is designed to match the subject matter of the specialty board requirements, including current standards of care. The program is a useful tool in aiding practitioners who now are evaluated through the American Board of Pathology Maintenance of Certification process. Board-certified physicians must build six core competencies to qualify for quality patient care within their medical specialty: appropriate patient care, application of medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, systems-based practice for optimal care, and practice-based learning and improvement.
Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Harvard Medical School designates this educational activity for a maximum of 19.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The American Medical Association has determined that physicians not licensed in the US who participate in the CME activity are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Surgical Pathology for the Practicing Pathologist is certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and is acceptable as part of a comprehensive lifelong learning (CME) program, a necessary component of maintenance of certification.
