To help pathologists stay up-to-date on the latest discoveries, the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) has developed an innovative education curriculum to address educational gaps in the diagnosis, classification and management of peripheral T‐cell Lymphoma (PTCL), a type of cancer that presents a particular clinical challenge.
