Using Whole Slide Images for Pathology Education Workshop
With advancements in digital pathology, whole slide images (WSI) and web based technologies are gradually being incorporated in pathology education beyond simply sharing digital images. This workshop (1.5 hours) is intended to provide the participants a practical and interactive experience to explore the utility of WSI in pathology education including the Digital Surgical Pathology Academy developed by the DPA which targets pathology residents and fellows, mobile pathology apps, social media platforms, publications, and new methods of e-learning. In the first hour (CME-earning), faculty will discuss commonly encountered issues in implementation and offer solutions or recommendations. In the last 30 mins (non-CME-earning), 2 vendors will share with the participants their experience in establishing web-based training programs for their pathologist customers. Objectives: 1. Raise awareness of the digital surgical pathology academy by DPA. 2. Discuss the challenges, approaches and opportunities in establishing WSI and web-based educational tools in pathology. 3. Be familiar with other resources in WSI and web-based pathology education. 4. Explore new social media platforms that integrate WSI into the comment stream 5. Explore the future of pathology education and e-learning.
