Full course description
A case-based approach to clinical laboratory data. Students are required to critically evaluate clinical case data, and write a summary of the case to include a description of abnormalities and pathophysiology causing the changes, differential diagnoses, and additional testing. A review of each case will be presented once you submit your write-up. It's a self-paced course. You are expected to work 4-6 hours per day for 5 days and finish this course in one week.
Veterinarians interpret laboratory results almost daily in clinical practice. Evaluation of the testing incorporated in the minimum database is critical to many cases in veterinary practice. This week of professional development with allow each student to become more comfortable interpreting data and making diagnoses. The objective of this course is to help students learn to interpret clinical pathology data as it applies to actual cases.
This is an online course. Students will be assigned 4 cases per day and are expected to invest appropriate time to thoroughly interpret the data. Students should expect to spend 45 minutes to an hour interpreting data and writing up cases and then 1.5-2 hours reviewing the cases' interpretation videos.
