MEDI 7073 Surgical Pathology of the Genito-urinary Uract, Salivary Gland and Endocrine System
Credit Points 10
Description This unit will re-inforce the diagnostic entities in genito-urinary tract, salivary gland and endocrine system pathology that were introduced in Surgical Pathology I. Two self-directed online learning modules with digitalized images and practical notes on the diagnostic approach to important pathological entities of the above sub-specialties will be provided. The basic concepts in surgical, cyto- and small biopsy pathology, including the appropriate ancillary techniques in the diagnosis, prognostication and treatment prediction will be assessed. This unit is designed to further develop the basic research and communication skills, and critical thinking acquired in Surgical Pathology I, and to reinforce the resources and technical requirements needed to reach the correct pathological diagnosis.

Students need to meet the legislative requirements to be in a supervised specialist training role in Pathology, and hence be working clinically in a hospital/laboratory setting. If a student fails to meet these requirements they will not be allowed to enrol in the subject.
