Pathology Grand Rounds provides continuing education and professional development for faculty in the Department of Pathology and related disciplines. Lecture topics encompass a wide range of pathology disciplines including surgical pathology, autopsy pathology, chemical pathology, transfusion medicine, and many more. The series offers opportunities for productive interdisciplinary learning between pathology faculty, clinical providers, and technical personnel.
The primary target audience is faculty physician pathologists at UW. Non‐UW pathologists may also benefit from the RSS. Nonpathology physicians will benefit from topics within their area of expertise, such as infectious disease specialists learning about MALDITOF diagnostics.
