International workshop on Pathology of Avian Diseases 13-15th November, 2018, jointly organized by Pathology Department UVAS and CL Davis and SW Thompson DVM Foundation USA
Pathology is a central and foundational discipline which bridges many other disciplines of veterinary medicine. It connects the basic sciences to the clinical sciences and is key in diagnostics. By appreciating the basic mechanisms of disease, and how they function in each organ system, professionals can better know the clinical disease and can more effectively use gross findings to render a diagnosis, and/or select relevant tissues and the tests to perform. The Department of pathology in collaboration with CL DAVIS and SW Thompson DVM Foundation, USA, is arranging a three days international workshop on pathology of avian diseases. This workshop will focus on the pathogenesis of disease for various poultry diseases, and illustrate through case-based examples and activities. Additionally, ensuring that appropriate samples arrive at the laboratory to be useful in diagnosis is essential, and so training in this aspect will be done as well, through necropsy and sample collection practical sessions. Prof. Dr. Corrie Brown, University of Georgia, USA and Dr. Tony Alves,Vet. Pathologist & Adjunct Professor at CL Davis and SW Thompson Foundation will be the resource persons for the workshop. The Workshop is partially funded by the CL Davis and SW Thompson Foundation.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
