  • Develop an approach to the handling of epithelial atypia encountered incidentally in cholecystectomy specimens
  • Recognize the diagnostic features, terminology and clinical significance of high-grade dysplasia of the gallbladder
  • Appreciate the concept of early gallbladder cancer, its prognosis and the importance of total sampling in its distinction from more advanced carcinomas
