Date/Title:Saturday, November 16 2013 - Annual ACVP/CLD Diagnostic Pathology Workshop - "A Day with Brian Wilcock"
Location:Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, CA
Description:Spend a day on a rare encounter with Brian Wilcock - one of North America's wittiest and well-known veterinary pathologists. This "rare sighting" of Dr. Wilcock, Emeritus Professor at the OVC, author of "Surgical Pathology of the Dog and Cat", and many book chapters, including "Pathology of the Eye and Ear" in the current of edition of JKP's "Pathology of Domestic Animals" promises to be an entertaining as well as revelatory on two of Dr. Wilcock's favorite topics.

The first part promises to be a truly fun-filled and irreverent talk entitled "If Plato Were a Pathologist..." and will examine the validity of our ongoing practice of imposing classifications based on seemingless variation in histologic appearance - i.e., the classic argument of "splitting" versus "lumping". In his attempt to bring order from increasing diagnostic chaos, Dr. Wilcock will bring many examples from the field of surgical oncology, such as mammary, adnexal, and vascular tumors, into play.

The second half of the day will take us to another area of Dr. Wilcock's expertise, entitled "Clinically Relevant Ocular Pathology for Everyone." By illustrating five or six fundamental principles of ocular pathology, Dr. Wilcock will perform the removing the fear that many of us feel when confronted with "globes of complex pathology."

Location:Nashville Convention Center (in conjunction with the 2011 Meeting of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists
Description:Navigating the Vast Pink Wasteland--Making Neuropathology Easy and Fun

The central nervous system is one of the most difficult, and yet one of the potentially most rewarding, of the major body structures for the veterinary pathologist to evaluate. The need to understand structure-function relationships, the complex microanatomy, the blinding speed at which new scientific information becomes available and the frustrating propensity of the system to artifactual changes combine to create this often-frustrating duality. Please join us for a one-day seminar designed to provide you with practical information to help simplify and refine the evaluation of the brain and spinal cord, no matter what your discipline in veterinary or comparative pathology. The panel of speakers will address basic microscopic pathological changes in the brain, common artifacts, comparative neuroanatomy, and the most important and timely neurological diseases of both small and large domestic animals.
