Recommendations are proposed to enhance the role of the pathologist in the hospital-based tumor conference (tumor board). The modifications focus on two components integral to the conference: the presentation of salient pathologic features of each tumor selected for discussion within the time constraints allotted, and the pathologist's role as a principal institutional educator with respect to neoplastic processes. Opportunities to utilize conference presentations as a resource in other educational settings are also considered.
