Cell Talks, initiated by the Cytopathology Program Directors Committee (CPDC), are online learning modules that help educate residents and fellows about various topics in cytopathology. They are intended to complement residency and fellowship training in areas outlined by the ACGME Milestones. Each Cell Talk includes a 10-15 minute, “bite-sized” audiovisual presentation accompanied by 3-5 assessment questions.

Residents and fellows are encouraged to submit a Cell Talk.  If interested, please contact the ASC National Office (302.543.6583) or visit the Cell Talks submission page on the ASC Web site at .
