This is a one-day course, comprising an update and review of gastrointestinal (GI) pathology. It should be suitable for specialist GI pathologists, consultants with a GI pathology interest, and relatively senior trainees. The speakers include two internationally recognised and highly distinguished experts, Dr Robert Odze from the United States and Dr Karel Geboes from Belgium. Also on the programme are several very experienced UK-based GI pathologists. Emphasis is on the histological diagnosis and classification of non-neoplastic and neoplastic disease, and on clinicopathological correlation.
