ACVP Pre-meeting workshop “No guts, no glory: A review of gastrointestinal tumors”

November 16 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Four outstanding speakers will present a workshop based on material from the upcoming fifth volume of the series, Surgical Pathology of Tumors of Domestic Animals: Tumors of the gastrointestinal system.  This meeting will target veterinary students, interns, residents, and anatomic pathologists involved in diagnostics.  The conference will be organized into presentations and case-based interactive discussions with digital microscopy files available to registrants prior to the meeting.  Case presentations will be used to illustrate the approach and diagnostic features of different GI tumors and their main differential diagnoses.

Course Objectives: This workshop will allow participants to identify tumors of the GI system, highlighting the most recent changes in nomenclature, principles and guidelines for diagnosis and reporting. Attendees will recognize the importance of combining clinical, gross and microscopic interpretation for diagnosis, including GI biopsies. Finally, there will be an interactive case-based discussion with digital microscopy files available to registrants prior to the workshop.  These case-based discussions will be used to illustrate the approach used by the presenters, highlighting the diagnostic features of GI system tumors and their differential diagnoses.
