Residents and medical student prepare presentations for the 2024 USCAP meeting






Eight Pathology Residents and one medical student are presenting research posters at the 2024 USCAP annual meeting, March 23-28, 2024, in Baltimore, MD.

The U.S. and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) annual meeting is the largest gathering of pathologists in the world and provides the opportunity for pathologists of all levels to catch up on groundbreaking research; learn first-hand from pathology legends; network with peers; see what’s new in the exhibit hall; delve deep into a specialty; or gain a broader knowledge base.
