Duration: 5 day(s)
Location: Auburn University
Program Director: Jey Koehler, DVM, PhD, DACVP
Auburn University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Pathobiology
jaw0007@auburn.edu
Description:
This course is designed to teach attendees how to describe gross and microscopic lesions in a variety of major organs in numerous animal species. 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.

E: spriestnall@rvc.ac.uk

Description:
Brush up your descriptive veterinary pathology skills in a supportive and collegial environment. Lectures, demonstrations, microscope sessions, quizzes, and mock examinations will be presented during a week-long course.
This course is 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 cytology specimens, electron micrographs, and interpret immunohistochemical stains. Also included will be instruction in the comprehensive correlation of gross, microscopic, cytologic, and ultrastructural findings with each other and with associated ancillary test data within the larger context of disease pathogenesis. Practice tests (gross and microscopic) will be given and graded to provide feedback, in addition to interactive learning sessions with the instructors. Microscopes will be provided, and gross lesions will be demonstrated by means of digital images.
Target Audience:
Veterinary graduates who are training to be veterinary pathologists, and advanced veterinary students wishing to increase their familiarity with the techniques and language of diagnostic pathology.
Special Instructions:
PLEASE NOTE THIS COURSE IS FILLED TO CAPACITY. SEATS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THE AUBURN COURSES IN JUNE 2016.

School of Veterinary Medicine
Program Director: Dr. Paul Facemire, Deputy Director, Global Health Engagements, U.S Army Office of the Surgeon General, Falls Church VA, (703) 681-4489
facemirep@hotmail.com
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.
