Description:
The annual pathology symposium of the European Division will be held this year in Helsinki in September 2015 immediately following the ESVP meeting. The subject is neuropathology and our speakers are world famous experts in their field.

Both of our subject matter experts have authored textbooks on neuropathology within the last three years - so be sure to attend and learn what is new in this rapidly changing field.

Helsinki is a fantastic city and the location of the meeting (The Scandic Grand Marina Hotel) is in the centre, on the harbour front, allowing short boat trips to the archipelago islands and the Suommenlina Fortress etc.

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.
All participants must register for this course.
