[ Printable Flyer ]

Date: Monday, June 26, 2017
Duration: 5 day(s)
Location: Oregon State University, Corvallis OR
Description:
Brush up your descriptive veterinary pathology skills in a supportive and collegial environment. This course is designed to help attendees develop and refine their process for describing gross and microscopic lesions in a variety of major organs in numerous animal species, as well as describe and interpret cytology specimens, electron micrographs, and immunohistochemical stains. Lectures, active learning exercises, mock examinations, and plenty of instructor feedback will all be part of this week-long course. Microscopes will be provided and gross lesions will be demonstrated by means of digital images. This course will have 36 hours of continuing education credits.

44th Annual Gross Pathology Review Course
Date: Monday, July 10, 2017
Duration: 5 day(s)
Location: Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine
Program Director: Dr. Eric Lombardini
719-663-0547
axolotlman@gmail.com
Description:
This July, Colorado State University's School of Veterinary Medicine will graciously host the 44th Annual CL Davis & Samuel Thompson Foundation Gross course in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. Subject matter experts have volunteered to participate and will be lecturing on all possible species, ranging from our domestic animals such as cats and dogs, livestock, poultry to laboratory animals and exotics of all stripes (all scales and all feathers). The course will close with a mock gross exam drawn from the experience of all of the lecturers. The gross exam has successfully helped prepare generations of veterinary pathologists confront the certification examination. If you are in the final throws of your preparation, or are earlier in your residency, if you are considering a future in Veterinary pathology or are a clinician looking for an in-depth review of macroscopic pathology, this tried and true course is for you. Take this intensive course (which is guaranteed to satisfy all RACE CE requirements) and tag on a few days of vacation to visit any of the nearby national parks. We hope to see you in July!

2017 PATHOLOGY OF LAB ANIMALS COURSE
Course Director: Angela Brice
abrice@upenn.edu

Description:
This course is designed primarily for veterinarians and other allied scientists who are responsible for the recognition and interpretation of lesions in laboratory animals. It is intended to help attendees interpret spontaneous diseases which might affect experimental result, or alter the health of laboratory animals. Pathology will receive major emphasis in the course, but other features of diseases such as etiology, diagnosis, and control will also be given attention. The course will encompass a wide range of diseases including infectious, neoplastic, iatrogenic, nutritional, and metabolic conditions in a variety of laboratory animals species. The major objective of this course is to review the pathology and, where appropriate, the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and control of infectious, neoplastic, iatrogenic, nutritional, and metabolic diseases of laboratory animals. At the completion of this course, attendees will be able to better recognize and interpret conditions which may affect experimental results or alter the health of laboratory animals.

Description:
Please join Drs. Amy Durham and Thierry Marchal for a 2-day lecture series all about lymphoma. Topics in lymphoma to include:
- The diagnostic approach to the WHO Classification System of Lymphomas
- Advanced diagnostic testing in lymphoma/leukemia
- Canine lymphoma -- The most common and not so common subtypes, indolent versus aggressive lymphomas, splenic nodules, and more
- Feline Lymphoma -- Types of gastrointestinal lymphomas and less common subtypes such as Hodgkin-like lymphoma, cutaneous lymphocytosis, nasal lymphoma and primary solitary ocular lymphoma
- Equine and Bovine Lymphoma -- All about T-cell rich large B-cell lymphomas
- Histiocytic disorders -- A potential diagnostic pitfall for lymphoma
In addition, there will be interactive case discussions each day. Participants will review patient clinical data and slides and then we will discuss the diagnostic approach, further tests that may be warranted, and (hopefully) reach a final diagnosis together!

The CL Davis European Division has funds to sponsor five awardees to attend the European Division Pathology Symposium. The award will comprise a grant of 400 euros towards the cost of travel and accommodation. There will be no registration fee. These scholarship awards are open to veterinary pathologists in training in European veterinary schools or research institutes. Preference will be given to applicants who are studying for higher degrees or who wish to gain further qualifications in pathology. Applicants should send a Curriculum vitae giving full details of their pathology experience and career plans together with a nomination by their Head of Department to the conference organiser Dr Simon Priestnall at spriestnall@rvc.ac.uk
