Virtual Teaching Sets for Digital Pathology Education

Pathology education has not kept pace with advances in educational technology due to the logistical constraints of physical access to a microscope. Dr. Lovitch believed Virtual Microscopy (VM), which replicates the experience of using a physical microscope in digital form, could potentially alleviate these educational constraints.

Dr. Lovitch and team developed annotated virtual slide sets coupled with online modules for self-directed learning and assessment as digital tools for pathology education. These materials will be accessible to any learner with an Internet-connected device, including smartphones and tablets.
