Australian Animal Pathology Standards Program Workshop
10th - 11th May, 2007, University of Sydney, Camden
Dr Elizabeth Maudlin DVM, DACVP, DACD conducted a two-day training workshop on dermatopathology as part of the Australian Society for Veterinary Pathology/Australian Animal Pathology Standards Program (AAPSP). Dr Maudlin is a member of the Faculty in the Laboratory of Pathobiology and Toxicology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.
Attended by 20 practicing veterinary pathologists from the private sector, government laboratories and academia, the workshop provided intensive exposure to the latest developments in diagnosis of skin diseases. The Faculty temporarily relocated a new ten head Zeiss teaching microscope from the University Veterinary Clinic Camden to the new General Teaching Building, officially opened only a week earlier, to enable interactive sessions with actual case material. This workshop is part of an annual series held in each State which ensures that veterinary pathologists throughout Australia are kept up to date with international best practice and approaches to diagnosis of animal disease. Animal Health Australia (AHA) manages the AAPSP.
