The Department’s 2018 Annual CME Symposium is jointly provided by the UNC Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and the Charlotte AHEC. This year’s CME Symposium will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018, at the Friday Conference Center in Chapel Hill. The symposium’s title is “Current Concepts and Diagnostic Challenges in Gastrointestinal, Liver, and Pancreatic Pathology.” Kevin Greene, MD, is the Course Director.

The 16th annual Walter Benson Lecture, “Biopsy Interpretation of Gastrointestinal Tract Tumors,” will be given by John Woosley, MD, PhD, Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, at UNC. Additional topics covered by the symposium speakers will include infectious and inflammatory disorders of the GI tract, lymphomas of the GI tract, neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions of the liver and pancreas, and molecular testing in gastrointestinal pathology.

Following the symposium, all attendees are cordially invited to attend a dinner honoring Susan Maygarden, MD, outgoing Residency Program Director. The dinner will be held at the historic DuBose House, located at 150 DuBose Home Lane, across the street from the Friday Conference Center. This will be an opportunity to meet new colleagues and renew long-standing relationships. If you will be joining us for the dinner, please make sure you note that on your registration form.
