Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

The pathology rotation strives to integrate gross pathology with other diagnostic modalities.  Students will work in groups of three to six for the two week rotation performing necropsies on mammals, birds, exotic species and laboratory animals under the guidance of pathology faculty and residents.  Students will prepare written reports of the necropsies performed and discuss the findings at daily morning rounds. Students will also be instructed by faculty of the Animal Health Diagnostic Center with expertise in ancillary diagnostic techniques.  Students will be expected to learn to use diagnostic testing regimens as integral parts of comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic plans.  Instruction will consist primarily of the discussion of clinical cases with emphasis on laboratory diagnostics.  Students will be expected to lead and participate in these discussions and will be evaluated on their ability to do so.

When Offered Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer.
