Following this course, you will be able to:
Determine exactly where you are throughout the GI tract, and recognize the normal morphology of each area.
Improve your diagnostic skills and re-assess how you sign out cases.
Interpret biopsies rather than using a list of descriptive terms and discuss why you need to make this change.
Apply a systematic approach when diagnosing biopsies that reduces risk of error and maximizes diagnostic information.
Identify and apply diagnostic criteria methodologically for inflammatory conditions of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, and anal region.
Evaluate and apply classification systems for the common inflammatory and neoplastic conditions of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, appendix and anal region.
Differentiate features based on fact from those based on tradition.
Discuss the clinical implications of a diagnosis.
Use the criteria for premalignant lesions of the GI tract to identify them, assign a histologic grade to them, explain their prognostic and therapeutic significance and management implications, and deal with problems occurring in post-ablative biopsies.
Assess the role that iatrogenic diseases and drugs/medications play in GI disorders.
