Case Review & Lab Tour for Physician Extenders

You are invited to attend a case review and lab tour at Cockerell Dermatopathology. During your visit, we will take you on a Life of the Specimen tour which walks you through all the steps a specimen takes before being read out by one of our dermatopathologists. Attendees will also sit down at the multi-headed microscope to discuss your challenging cases. The goal of the visit is to sharpen your clinical skills which will ultimately lead to the best possible care for each of your patients.
