  • Introduction

    This is a set of 4 courses that cover the following topics:

    • Course 1: Cells with the potential for litigation
    • Course 2: Knowledge about the pathogenesis of squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix in 2020
    • Course 3: New IECC classification of endocervical adenocarcinomas and its effects on gynecological cytology
    • Course 4: Multinucleated cells in gynecological cytology

    .The total length of study is 8 hours.
    Study of courses is free. Issuance of certificates for their successful completion is charged (800 CZK, 31 EUR, 37 USD).
    Courses cannot be purchased separately, only as a whole set. 

    We are applying for EACCME accreditation. This proces takes approx. 3 months. In case of successful accreditation, certificates with credits will be available in autumn 2021.

    For each course you can watch a presentation with spoken commentary (video) and take a test. There is no time limit for passing the test, but you have 5 attempts for each test.

  • 1. Course: Litigation cells

    Ikona delky trvaniThe length of the course is 2 hours

    The presentation deals with the cells and situations that are the cause of false negativity of some results of gynecological screening cytology. At the same time, it characterizes the false negativity and points out the ways to deal with it in the setting of routine laboratory work-flow. The presentation is followed by a test imitating the reading of a slide in routine practice. 

    What will you learn?

    Upon finishing the course, you will be able to define litigation cells. You will understand false negativity in cervical cancer screening and be capable of tackling this issue by some changes of laboratory procedures. Also, you will be aware of „risky slides“, and you will train how to approach them in a daily screening routine.  


  • 2. Course: Our undestanding of the pathogenesis of cervical sqamous cell carcinoma in 2020

    The length of the course is 2 hours

    The presentation summarizes current knowledge about the carcinogenesis of squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. It describes the individual stages and also points out gaps in our knowledge. The improvements in our knowledge are associated with possible practical implications. 

    What will you learn?

    Upon finishing the course, you will be able to describe six carcinogenesis stages leading to cervical cancer, including selected basic knowledge regarding some epigenetic changes participating in the process.


  • 3. Course: New IECC classification of endocervical adenocarcinomas

    Ikona delky trvani The length of the course is 2 hours

    The presentation explains the essence of classification in the context of knowledge of histology and molecular genetics. Shows cytological correlation. It comments on the consequences of the new classification of endocervical adenocarcinomas for cytological screening and gynecological practice. 

    What will you learn?

    Upon finishing the course, you will be familiar with the background and understand the basis for a new WHO 2020 classification of cervical adenocarcinoma.


  • 4. Course: Multinucleated cells in gynecological cytology

    Ikona delky trvaniThe length of the course is 2 hours

    The course categorizes the different types of multinucleated cells that may be present in PAP coatings. Provides the context of clinical information and / or histological diagnosis to each giant cell type. The course presents the recently described type of HSIL and a rare type of invasive squamous cell carcinoma.

    What will you learn?
    Upon finishing the course, you will be able to identify five types of multinucleated cellular structures and their histologic/clinical counterparts. You will be familiar with a newly described subtype of HSIL and an extremely rare type of cervical squamous cell carcinoma.
