2021 Northeastern Veterinary Pathology Conference
Date: Friday, September 17, 2021
Duration: 2 day(s)
Description:
The 2021 meeting will be expanded to 2 FULL days (which means 16 hours of RACE-accredited CE for the same price of only $50 - what a deal). This meeting will be focused on pathology of the GI tract - the tube and pancreas (no liver - that's another subject in itself for another meeting). Friday will focus on small animal GI, with UGA Professor of Pathology Jesse Hostetter giving our Friday Keynote on Evaluating Endoscopic GI Biopsies and being our expert commenter for the rest of the day, which will include small animal and non-avian exotic GI cases. On Saturday, Prof Paco Uzal will give a lecture on large animal GI pathology and be our commentator for large animal and poultry/avian cases.

We now have 20 additional 10-minute slots for presenters (in addition to those already reserved for our traditional presenters from the Joint Pathology Center, Cornell, UPenn, NCSU, and the National Zoo), and we are looking for presenters from around the world! The language for case presentation is in English, and all materials (glass slides and writeups) are due by August 8th.

This year for the first time, We are also this year taking scanned slides as submissions in the following formats - Aperio (.svs), Hamamatsu (.vms, .vmu, or .ndpi), Leica (.scn), MIRAX (.mrxs), Philips (.tiff), Sakura (.svslide), Trestle (.tif), Ventana (.bif or .tif), or generic tiled TIFF (.tif) format.

Presenters will attend at no charge, and attendees will receive two relaxing, informal and fun days of RACE-accredited CE for the incredibly low price of only $50.

If you would like to present a case, these slots will fill up fast, so contact course director Dr. Sarah Cudd at skcudddvm@gmail.com for details and diamond-hard deadlines. If you would like to participate as a non-presenting attendee, you can register now at: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_8EJaPl-rQ-aMEorkEXMhMg
