Clinical Pathology Improvement Program (CPIP)

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.

Myeloid Neoplasms Presenting with Neutrophilia

Absolute neutrophilia can result from a variety of reactive and neoplastic causes. It reflects an underlying condition rather than a disease itself and may be present as a result of infection, inflammatory conditions, medication (eg, steroids), non-hematologic neoplasms, or primary myeloid neoplasms such as myeloproliferative and myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasms. This activity will focus on different causes of neoplastic neutrophilia as well as the diagnostic criteria and morphologic features and will emphasize the role of molecular diagnostics. .
