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.

Coverage of major topics are:
Cellular responses to injury
Hemodynamics
Inflammation and Repair
Immunity and Hypersensitivity
Neoplasia
Toxicologic Pathology
Microbial mechanisms of disease

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
elombardini@hotmail.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!
