Elsevier launches comprehensive online pathology curriculum

Elsevier has launched PATHPrimer, its integrated web-based pathology curriculum, the company said.

PATHPrimer draws upon the knowledge and expertise of thought leaders in pathology to deliver the most comprehensive anatomic pathology curriculum available. The PATHPrimer official launch will take place at the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) 105th Annual Meeting taking place at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, WA.

PATHPrimer´s key features and functions include:

Lessons and topics that cover core disciplines, with more than 1,500 topics and over 1,200 primer questions addressing anatomic pathology;

The ability for residents and educators to easily identify learning objectives, assess progress and customize studies;

Content sourced from Anatomic Pathology board Review by Jay H. Lefkowitch, as well as Diagnostic Pathology series to sharpen diagnostic skills, prepare physicians for certification and ensure consistent, high-quality care.

Program directors and teaching faculty are provided with a consistent curriculum across all academic pathology disciplines, giving faculty more time to share their own personal experiences and expertise with residents. They can also track resident progress through the curriculum and monitor performance, gaining important insights such as which residents may require additional assistance and the areas in which their performance is the strongest.

Elsevier provides information solutions that enhance the performance of science, health, and technology professionals, empowering them to make better decisions, deliver better care, and sometimes make groundbreaking discoveries that advance the boundaries of knowledge and human progress.
