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 prior to the course, 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

LUNCH AND BREAKS ARE PROVIDED WITH YOUR TUITION.

Duration: 5 day(s)
Location: UniS, 1 Schanzeneckstrasse, Lecture Hall No. A-122, 1st basement floor, Bern, Switzerland 031 631 81 11
Program Director: Dr. Christine Goepfert - christine.goepfert@vetsuisse.unibe.ch (local questions only)
Dr. Bruce Williams - bruce.h.williams.dvm@gmail.com (all other questions)
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.
