Title: Riffs on Future Path: the fall of paper, the rise of smarties and the quest for selfies

Abstract

#pathologists — forget driverless cars; let’s talk about driverless microscopes…and wearable laboratories. The future may well be in our jeans. Explore the trends that conspire to help us put the “more” back in morphology. Learn how interfaces, connectivity, consumers, web-of-things, integration, augmented reality, mobile access, and globalization are changing our profession and re-shaping our pathology lives. The future is now and entropy isn’t what it used to be. Join us as we create a paracosm and search for the One App to rule them all.

Objectives:

  • Embrace the future of e-pathology learning and interactive texts
  • Understand the seismic shifts in the pathology workflow paradigm
  • Create a listicle of the digital trends that are shaping our practice
  • Use your smartphone and tablet to enhance your practice and advance the specialty

Major developments in pathology raise many questions. Be part of the discussion on the way forward.
