Description:
CLASS: Current Laboratory Animal Science Seminar
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, facility design, 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: Pathology of Laboratory Animals
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.

Clinical Pathology for Anatomic Pathologists
The workshops goal is to provide a concise review of clinical pathology concepts and practice at interpreting a wide range of laboratory findings for anatomic pathology residents with focused attention in the areas of clinical chemistry, cytology and hematology.
Format: Each day of the 3 day workshop will focus on a variety of topics divided into didactic and interactive lectures along with practice cases. Total contact time will be approximately 20 hrs approved CE credit. Syllabus and notes provided online.

AAZV 22nd Annual Zoo & Wildlife Pathology Workshop 2015

[ Printable Flyer ]

Date: Sunday, September 27, 2015
Duration: 1 day(s)
Location: Red Lion Hotel on the River Jantzen Beach
Portland, Oregon
Program Director: Dr. Dalen Agnew (agnewd@dcpah.msu.edu)
Description:
The theme of this year's AAZV/CL Davis Foundation pathology workshop will focus on collaborations between anatomic pathology and diagnostic imaging (radiographs, CAT scan, MRI, ultrasound, etc) in the morning, with an afternoon session of cool cases from a wide variety of species.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Tony Pease, DVM, Dipl ACVR, from Michigan State University. Dr. Pease has extensive experience in all imaging modalities, and has collaborated with pathologists on numerous exotic and domestic cases, as well as developing streamlined diagnostic panels involving both imaging and pathology. He will present "Lions, tigers and turtles - how imaging has expanded our horizons." His interactive presentation will discuss the use of both disciplines in diagnostics and understanding disease processes. Cases from pathologists from around the world will be enlisted to illustrate these diagnostic collaborations.
The afternoon session will include examples of the most interesting cases pathologists and clinicians have seen over the last year.
Special Instructions:
If you wish to present a case, please email Dalen Agnew (agnewd@dcpah.mpsu.edu) with a brief description of the case by 6 Jul 2015. Those applicants with chosen cases will be notified by email by the following week. Preference will be given for cases involving the interaction between diagnostic imaging and anatomic pathologists, and team presentations (a radiologist or clinician and an anatomic pathologist) are encouraged!
More info on the 2015 AAZV Annual Conference here.
Tuition:
$175 ($100 for veterinary students), which includes DVD, handouts, and refreshments.

Program Director: Dr. Jennifer Chapman
Description:
This full-day course will cover topics from normal anatomy and histology to classic and important pathology in aquatic species. Species covered will include fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and marine mammals. The tag-team faculty will present material in a step-wise manner so that pathologists will be both engaged AND educated. The workshop will focus on the identification of both normal anatomy and common diseases of these species including gross and histologic appearance, salient diagnostic features, and differential diagnoses. This exciting course should be of interest to both clinical and anatomic veterinary pathologists, pathology residents, and diagnosticians working with animals.
