Luminaries in Pathology

MONDAY, MARCH 13, 2023

New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center – Great Hall A

Join two of pathology’s most distinguished teachers as they guide you through challenging cases in a virtual slide session. Dr. Andrew Rosenberg and Dr. Wendy Frankel will each spend one 50 minutes sharing diagnostic pearls and cautionary tales while engaging audience members in an open access interactive session. These sessions are included with General Registration.

Andrew Eric Rosenberg, MD

University of Miami Health System
4:30 – 5:20 PM
Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology

Using HI (Human Intelligence) in Diagnosing Neoplasms and Diseases of the Skeleton


The course will explore a spectrum of tumors and diseases of the skeleton. It will stress the approach to morphological analysis of bone, the generation of a differential diagnosis using an algorithmic approach, and the integration of immunohistochemical, genetic, clinical, and radiological findings. The structure will be foundational in progression, beginning with the common and ending with the rare. Attendees will be encouraged to be engaged – asking questions, proposing answers, and having a fun dialogue with humor.


  • Optimize the process of identifying key morphological features essential to precise diagnoses
  • Understand the indispensable role of integrating clinical and radiological findings
  • Appreciate the importance of genetic advances in bone neoplasia.
  • Learn your limits and how to deal with them


Dr. Rosenberg is a surgical pathologist with expertise in the pathobiology of diseases and neoplasms of the musculoskeletal system.  He began his training in Anatomic Pathology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was Chief Resident, and subsequently a faculty member for 30 years.  During that time period, he held a variety of administrative positions related to the oversight of Anatomic Pathology, the Division of Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology, and Quality Assurance.  Concurrently, he was a faculty member of Harvard Medical School and achieved the rank of Professor.  In 2011, he joined the Miller School of Medicine, University of Miami where he is Vice Chair of Faculty Affairs for the Department of Pathology, Director of Anatomic Pathology, Director of Quality Assurance, and Director of Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology.

His daily work focuses on the surgical pathology of bone and soft tissue pathology – the in-house volume of tumors is large and he also handles a significantly sized and challenging consultation practice.  This experience has provided the materials for him to be able to teach pathologists, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, and medical and radiation oncologists, and to publish over 400 articles, 70 chapters, and several books focusing on bone tumors and sarcomas of the musculoskeletal system.

Wendy L. Frankel, MD

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center
5:30 – 6:20 PM
Gastrointestinal Pathology

Challenges in Colorectal Polyps and Cancer


Join Dr. Wendy Frankel as she guides you through challenging cases in an engaging virtual slide session. She will share diagnostic pearls and cautionary tales while reviewing staging and reporting colorectal cancer, polyps and polyposis, and other tumors in the colorectum.


  • To understand staging challenges in assessing colorectal cancer
  • To be aware of diagnostic pitfalls in polyps and polyposis
  • To recognize that not all tumors/lesions in the colorectum are of colorectal origin
