As the complexity of practicing medicine grows, it is more important than ever to keep skills up to date. The Clinical Pathology Improvement Program (CPIP) supports both clinical and anatomic pathologists with a diverse portfolio of hands-on, interactive, case-based learning to address both common and esoteric issues faced in the lab.

CPIPs are practical and easily applied to your work. The case-based approach builds as you move through the materials, unveiling additional information. Just like in the real world. Each case is developed and peer-reviewed by industry experts. It is designed for pathologists, by pathologists.

Consider CPIPs if you are a:

  • Pathologist with clinical and/or laboratory management responsibilities.

  • Pathologist seeking CME/SAM or MOC credits in clinical pathology.

  • Subspecialty clinical pathologist who needs to keep current.

  • Pathology resident preparing for boards in clinical pathology.

Whether choosing to purchase individual cases, released monthly, or selecting an annual subscription, each CPIP case will help you to gain the knowledge you need to stay at the forefront of diagnosing illnesses.

Challenging Issues in Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS)

The antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an acquired autoimmune condition and is associated with the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL), including the so-called lupus anticoagulant (LA). These aPL are heterogeneous in nature and clinicians and laboratory personnel are often puzzled by this diversity and find the interpretation of these tests to be very challenging individual patients. Learn how to recognize the clinical presentation of APS and interpret the required laboratory testing to support its diagnosis.
