Australian Animal Pathology Standards Program Training Workshop
1st – 2nd September 2008, The University of Sydney, Camden
International expert Professor Stephen Weisbrode visited Australia in August and September 2008 to present a series of two day workshops on the pathology of bones and joints. Dr Weisbrode is based in the Department of Veterinary Biosciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Ohio State University.
The NSW Bone Up on Bone Pathology Workshop was held in the General Teaching Building with over 20 practicing veterinary pathologists from the private sector, government laboratories and academia attending, including former UVTHC pathologist Al Kessel who is now at Gribbles Pathology in Adelaide.
The FAVPH group relocated a five head Olympus microscope to the GTB to enable interactive sessions with actual case material, including the sharing of the histology of bone lesions such as Acorn calves and Dexter chondrodysplasia from FAVPH research projects.
