Description:
CLASS
This seminar provides an intensive and comprehensive review of selected topics in laboratory animal medicine and science. It is intended to serve the needs of veterinarians across a broad spectrum: clinical veterinarians, residents, training program directors, and faculty directors. The course includes lectures on animals models, animal diseases and husbandry, equipment, facilty deisgn, IACUC issues, pain management, statistics, and research methods. Each participant should leave the course with a new working knowledge of specific changes to the field of laboratory animal medicine and science. Attendees will acquire new and current information on selected animal models, animal husbandry and disease, and research programs that will enable them to better oversee the daily operations of laboratory animal facilities. The information provided will assist practicing veterinarians in the field of laboratory animal medicine to prepare for board review and certification.

POLA
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 emcompass 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.

Both written and oral descriptive techniques will be taught. The course will also include lectures on interpretation and description of electron micrographs and immunohistochemical preparations, the correlation of gross, microscopic, cytologic and clinicopathologic data, and a review of basic molecular techniques. Practice tests (gross and microscopic) will be given and graded to provide feedback. Microscopes will be provided, and gross lesions will be demonstrated by means of digital images. The European version is very similar to that given annually in the United States, however, lectures on the comprehensive section (including a mock quiz) of the ECVP exam will be substituted on Wednesday for the clinical pathology section (given in the U.S)
Special Instructions:
Tuition:
Tuition for participants is 350 Euros for the five day course, which includes coffee and tea breaks.
