It Starts with a Pap


This session will cover basic anatomy of the cervix, what a Pap test is and how it is coded.  Actual pathology slides will be presented to give the audience a better understanding of abnormal pathology.  Will review the current practice guidelines for the management of abnormal Paps, and the
