Who we are
Pathology is the foundation of all medicine, human and veterinary. As pathologists, we study the manifestations and causes of disease in all species of the animal kingdom.
As researchers and academics, we strive to advance the study of veterinary diseases and the comparison of diseases manifested by diverse species of animals.
We have the largest repository of pathology images in the world. Our unique courses and content are provided by world-renowned experts and outstanding pathologists in the field.
We pursue and disseminate our knowledge not for its own sake, but to improve the health and well-being of all animals in the world – humans included.
Dr. Corrie Brown, Foundation board member and popular speaker, was awarded the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges Billy E. Hooper award for Distinguished Service in December 2020.
We are proud to announce that Dr. Bruce Williams, the Foundation's Treasurer and longtime tireless supporter, has been named a Distinguished Member of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists.
March 1, 2021 the Foundation welcomed Dr. Jey Koehler into the role of President. Dr. Koehler has previously served on the Faculty of Discussants and the Board of Directors, and since 2016 has been the director of the Descriptive Veterinary Pathology course.
