Interactive Microscopy Proposals

Interactive Microscopy Course Proposal-Annual Meeting

 

The USCAP Interactive Microscopy Program is a unique, interactive program that was initially introduced as a free-standing course in the fall of 2014, then incorporated into the annual meeting in 2015.  Given the success of the program at the 2015 annual meeting, we are soliciting proposals for IM sessions at future annual meetings

 

Interactive Microscopy courses at the annual meeting are designed for one faculty person to run for 1.5 hours.  Each session should have a minimum of 20 minutes for slide preview. The sessions are based on the evaluation and discussion of actual glass slides, not virtual slides. You will be expected to bring the slides to the session, and to provide a list of case histories and a handout if your proposal is selected. Examples of case histories and handouts are available upon request.

 

If you would like to submit an Interactive Microscopy Course Proposal for the 2016 Annual Meeting, download the instruction and form packet below.  Note: Proposals must be received no later than October 23, 2015 for consideration for inclusion at the 2016 annual meeting.  This is an extension of the original October 1 deadline.

Interactive Microscopy Course Proposal-Palm Springs

 

The USCAP Interactive Microscopy Program is a unique, interactive program that was initially introduced as a free-standing course in the fall of 2014.  Given the success of the program at the pilot and at the annual meeting, we are soliciting proposals for IM courses that will occur all year long in our new facility in Palm Springs, California.

 

Interactive Microscopy courses are designed to be held over a weekend (Saturday and Sunday) at the Palm Springs facility.  Courses will run all day, with two coffee breaks and a break for lunch.  A minimum of four faculty (and a maximum of 6) is recommended, as you will be running two rooms (each with an 18-headed scope and individual preview scopes) at the same time.  Each session should last approximately 1.5 hours, and have a minimum of 20-30 minutes for slide preview.  This program is based on the evaluation and discussion of actual glass slides, not virtual slides.  You will be expected to bring the slides to the session, and to provide a list of case histories and a handout if your proposal is selected.  Examples of case histories and handouts are available upon request.
