Clinical Pathology TimeOnline

Clinical Pathology TimeOnline
This TimeOnline Course is intended to provide participants with a set of skills to improve their capacity to conduct in house cytopathology as an adjunct to canine and feline case management.

 

You will be taken through a transitional and streamlined program starting with cytopathological specimen collection and preparation; how to establish a common sense approach to examining and interpreting cytopathological smears; and application of that approach to the diagnosis of common degenerative, inflammatory and neoplastic diseases affecting skin and lymph nodes. The course is designed to gradually and surely build confidence and cytopathological experience so that you can more effectively reach a diagnosis and apply that to case management.

Learning Outcomes

By successfully completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe and perform effective cytopathological specimen preparation to enhance the likelihood of diagnostic success
  • Develop an effective framework for the evaluation of cytopathological specimens
  • Analyse and interpret cytopathological specimens to formulate a fundamental diagnosis that relates to the pathogenesis of the lesion
  • Construct appropriate fundamental differential diagnoses for cytopathological specimens collected from skin masses
  • Evaluate cytopathological specimens collected from peripheral lymph nodes to formulate an effective investigative pathway.
 

Modules

  1. Introduction to veterinary cytopathology: fundamentals of preparing and examining cytopathological specimens
  2. Identification and differentiation of pathological processes in cytopathological smears: neoplasia, inflammation, and degeneration
  3. Cytopathological identification of common (and some uncommon) skin masses. How far can you go in diagnosis?
  4. Cytopathology of peripheral lymph nodes: is it neoplastic, reactive or inflamed?
