Description:
Join us for an intensive course covering topics in general pathology! The course will cover information included in the Phase I portion of the certifying examination. Your instructors are all experienced trainers who will focus on material derived from the texts, and they will also include relevant and recent advances in general pathology. The material will be integrated with cases and mechanisms of disease in breakout sessions that are designed to reinforce information through practical and diagnostic applications of general pathology knowledge. Those enrolled will receive a study guide and study questions by November 2016, as well as a reference list of key important and/or recent articles (chosen by each of the faculty). All enrolled will have the opportunity to take a practice exam that will be graded and returned to each candidate.

Description:
This June, Cornell University's School of Veterinary Medicine will host the 45th Annual C.L Davis & Samuel Thompson Foundation Gross course in beautiful upstate New York. Subject matter experts have volunteered to participate and will be lecturing many species, ranging from 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 to confront certification examinations around the world. If you are in the final throes of your board preparation, are early 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 local state and national parks, tour the historic campus, or just relax in scenic upstate New York in one of the most awesome parts of the year. We hope to see you in June!

Lectures on macroscopic pathology of:
* Horses
* Dogs and Cats
* Ruminants (Large and small)
* Marine Mammals
* Laboratory small animals
* Non-human primates
* Aquatics
* Avian (Domestic and exotic)
