2023 US Descriptive Veterinary Pathology Course

May 31 @ 8:00 am June 4 @ 5:00 pm

Are you ready to dive into the depth and wonders of our prestigious annual Descriptive Pathology Course? So save these dates on your calendar! This in-person meeting will have lectures from Dr. Linden Craig (the necropsy queen), Dr. Jey Koehler (the “don’t waste words” queen), and Dr. Patty Pesavento (the EM anchor queen) on recognizing, describing, and interpreting gross, microscopic, and ultrastructural lesions as well as choosing and critically evaluating special diagnostic techniques (IHC/ISH/PCR) and understanding macro-micro correlates. In addition to lectures, there are active learning exercises, and FIVE mock tests covering both interpretation multiple-choice and description of digital slides. We will also have a session on how test writers make good multiple-choice questions.

Please take note: there will be NO RECORDING AND NO REBROADCAST THIS YEAR!


Location: University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN (In-person only!)

Our local host recommends booking at one of these hotels (please note that there are no reserved blocks or special rates, book at your own discretion):
