53rd Pathology Of Laboratory Animals (POLA)

15 - 17 June 2010 Course Director Bruce H. Williams, DVM

Sponsored by Armed Forces Institute of Pathology American Registry of Pathology

DESCRIPTIVE VETERINARY

COURSE 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 interpre-tation 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.

T

his 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 facility directors. The course includes lectures on animal models, animal diseases and husbandry, equipment, facility design, IACUC issues, pain management, statistics, and research methods.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

E

ach 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 select 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.

his 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 results, 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 animal species.

T

COURSE OBJECTIVE

he 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.
