1st Annual Middle Eastern Division Diagnostic Pathology Symposium

[ Printable Flyer ]

Date: Saturday, March 21, 2015
Duration: 6 day(s)
Location: Movenpick Hotel Cairo Pyramids
Alexandria Road, Pyramids | Giza | Egypt
+202 33772555 | hotel.pyramids@moevenpick.com
Program Director: Iman Shaheed, Ph.D. Vice Dean for Research, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Cairo University imanshaheed@yahoo.com
Tawfik Aboellail, DVM, Ph.D, DACVP, Associate Professor,Anatomic Pathology, Colorado State University tawfik.abboellail@colostate.edu

Osama Eltawil, DVM, Ph.D. Chairman of Toxicology Dept., osamaeltawil@yahoo.com
Description:
The stated goals of this first of three annual symposia are as follows:

1. Train local and regional veterinary pathologists (50-100/year) to diagnose common (endemic) diseases of the Egyptian/regional livestock and laboratory animals.

2. Prepare the government veterinary pathologists to identify/diagnose pathogens of high impact (bioterror agents, pandemic and highly contagious pathogens that pose threat to the public health and pathogens of greater economic impact).

3. Standardize pathologic diagnoses between veterinary pathologists working in different academic and government institutions. Special emphasis will be given to formulating morphologic diagnosis, etiologic diagnosis and differential diagnoses of similar disease conditions in different animal species.

4. Combine multiple measures such as mock examination, literature review and communication with experts in the field of veterinary pathology from around the World to assess the readiness of our local and regional veterinary pathologist to take a standardized test administered by renowned International organizations.

5. Help academic pathologists to better characterize pathologic lesions encountered in experimental studies and hence improve the quality of manuscripts. Overall, this might increase the number of articles accepted for publication in International journals and help increase the rank of our academic institutions. 6. Establish a study center with consolidated resources to prepare veterinary pathologists to sit for the board certification examination. Those resources will include slide sets for classical pathologic diseases, newest versions of reference books and periodicals needed to prepare for the certifying examination. Establish a question bank compiled by board-certified veterinary pathologists who graduated from Egyptian and Middle Eastern Universities.

7. Update the faculty personnel who are teaching in different academic institutions on the new approaches utilized in the diagnosis and research of animal diseases.

8. Equip the teaching faculty with the descriptive tools to efficiently educate veterinary students in the core pathology courses taught in the third year of veterinary curriculum.

9. Spread the culture of accountability working in veterinary teaching hospitals and diagnostic laboratories around the countries.

10. Standardize necropsy techniques adopted for different animal species and collection of samples from animals that die on quarantine or in transit.
