Level of instruction: Intermediate
Intended audience: The course is intended for grossers including histology techs, pathologists' assistants, and pathology residents. The content may benefit those working with surgical pathology specimens, and dictating gross descriptions in pathology reports.
Course Information: This course will briefly describe basic principles for using a speech-recognition system in anatomic pathology reporting, including an overview of the equipment. While referencing dictation templates we will go over principles of the gross description of surgical pathology reports, digital speech-recognition techniques, refresh one’s gross pathology knowledge, and subsequently obtain a practical skillset applicable in various facets of the medical practice. In conclusion, we will review the current CAP requirements for the gross description (anatomic pathology checklist).
