  • Surgical Pathology of the GI, GYN and GU Tracts and Tumors of Soft Tissue and Endocrine Organs: Practical Tips for the Practicing Pathologist

To Our June and July 2020 Attendees:

Scientific Symposiums International is currently working with the Fairmont Grand Del Mar in San Diego and the Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa at Kaanapali on Maui, regarding our June and July 2020 Courses, respectively.

Neither Hotel has cancelled the courses and our binding contracts at present, but we are working with both on alternate dates for these two courses. We will be offering transfers for these courses to other courses in 2020 and 2021, with no cancellation fees. We will also be offering the same choice to attendees for the October courses, should the need arise.

We will keep you informed as soon as we learn more, which will be in the next few weeks. In the interim, please stay safe and take care.
