Magrane Basic Science Course, 12 May – 12 July 2023, online

ONLINE BSC 2023 May 12-July 10, 2023


A limited number of spaces in the Pathology section (Ocular Pathology Review Course) of the 2023 online Magrane Basic Science Course in Veterinary and Comparative Ophthalmology are being made available for ACVP/ECVP Residents and Diplomates, and other pathology trainees. The Ocular Pathology Review Course (OPRC) is a segment of the entire Basic Science Course comprising approximately 14 hours of pre-recorded lectures covering neoplastic and non-neoplastic pathology of the globe and adnexa of companion animal species.  In addition, you can participate live at 14:00-15:00h UTC on June 13th and 14th, 2023 (time and dates to be confirmed) or watch on delay two approximately 1-hour discussions at which the faculty – Drs. Carole Naranjo (IDEXX, Spain), Philippe Labelle (Antech, Canada), and Leandro Teixeira (COPLOW, USA) will address your questions. All pre-recorded material will be available online for approximately 8 weeks (May 12-July 10, 2023).

The course provides an entry-level review of diseases and processes affecting ocular structures emphasizing nomenclature, key diagnostic features, and diagnostic challenges. The course will focus on pathologic correlates of clinical disease in domestic/companion animals and, although aimed at the primary audience of ABVO/ECVO Residents, will be of interest and educational value to many in the Pathology discipline. The course is not intended as a review for ACVP/ECVP Boards and will not include any hands-on slide review.

Enrollment in the Ocular Pathology Review course is open to individuals in approved ACVP or ECVP residency programs as well as graduate students in veterinary pathology, International university faculty teaching veterinary pathology, international trainees in veterinary pathology, and individuals with an interest in ophthalmic pathology.
