Davis-Thompson Foundation ACVP Pre-Meeting Workshop

October 29, 2021 @ 8:00 am October 30, 2021 @ 12:00 pm US Central Daylight/Standard Time

Please join us on October 29th and 30th, 2021 for the exciting Davis-Thompson Foundation ACVP Pre-Meeting Workshop about “Soft Tissue Tumors are “Hard”: Current Perspectives”.

Soft tissue neoplasms comprise some of the most common neoplastic entities in veterinary medicine. Drs. Avallone, Roccabianca and Schulman will present material from the third volume of the series, Surgical Pathology of Tumors of Domestic Animals: Tumors of Soft Tissues, with a special guest lecture by Dr. Brian Summers. 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. The presentations will cover principles and guidelines for soft tissue tumor diagnosis, grading and reporting. The most common and some of the most challenging entities, including fibrous, perivascular, and vascular tumors, will be addressed.
