  • Describe the updated 2020 WHO classification of endometrial, ovarian, cervical and vulvar carcinomas, including relevant precursor lesions.
  • Discuss pitfalls and strategies in diagnosing difficult uncommon ovarian neoplasms, endometrial/uterine neoplasms, cervical and vulvar lesions
  • Apply appropriate diagnostic immunohistochemistry markers and ancillary molecular tests relevant to the practice of Gynecologic Pathology.
  • Describe the clinical utility and testing considerations of predictive biomarkers currently in routine use for tumors of the gynecologic tract
  • Describe the common and uncommon abnormalities seen in products of conception specimens
  • Implement quality assurance measures in their practice relevant to this subspecialty area
