Two of the most important issues in continuing pathology education are the definition of a content expert and the issue of recognizing the "practice gaps." Purposeful definition of these concepts are critical in recognizing how the expert can be utilized to maintain an effective continuing pathology education, and what really constitutes the educational needs of the practicing pathologists. In this manuscript, we review the definition and significance of these 2 key concepts and challenging issues in how experts can aid in the identification of educational needs and closing of practice gaps.
