Workshop 2018

Leaders + Inspiration + Education



Designed for pathologists and lab professionals who need to understand the fundamentals of digital pathology technology

Workshop Summary

This workshop is the second in a planned continuing series of hospital-based, practical workshops focused on digital pathology. Short, didactic lectures by national experts will be punctuated by round-table discussions including vendor representatives. Topics covered will include the development of RFPs for the digital pathology equipment, improving surgical pathology workflow on the basis of LEAN principles, and integration of the new technology with current LISs and automated equipment. Included in the registration price will be a conference dinner starting at 7:00 p.m. to provide more time for interaction with faculty and registrants.
The workshop will begin at 9:00 am, Friday, December 7, with coffee and a light breakfast. Friday morning and afternoon sessions will consist of lectures, faculty Q and A, and faculty/industry discussion panels. Saturday morning, December 8, will feature a tour of the clinical laboratories at The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (The Ohio State University), faculty/industry panels, and a summary of “lessons learned” during the entire workshop. The conference will adjourn at 12:00 noon.

It is anticipated that registrants will have a keen interest in deploying a digital pathology system in their practices and will come away from the experience will a broad range of practical ideas about how to rapidly pursue this goal. Because of the limited size of the conference room, registrations will be limited to 75 on a first-come, first-served basis.

A block of room will be available at the Blackwell Inn and Pfahl Conference Center at the group rate of $149/night plus taxes.
