Each part will consist of lectures, case teaching and discussions.

This intensive course is designed for practicing pathologists as well as pathologists in training.

Diagnostic criteria will be presented for biopsies and resections. The topics have been carefully selected to illustrate common diagnostic problems and pitfalls in gastrointestinal pathology and provide the basis for in-depth discussion of criteria and usefulness of complementary investigations, such as immunohistochemistry and molecular analysis, in achieving the correct diagnosis.
