Davis-Thompson Foundation – 2021 CLASS/POLA
SAVE THE DATE!
Here is the first announcement for the 2021 Current Lab Animal Science Seminar and Pathology of Lab Animals Course!
For those who work with laboratory animals, or those who might need laboratory animal knowledge for a certain “quiz” that may be coming up, this is course is for you! July 31 and August 1 the Davis-Thompson Foundation presents the CLASS course, these two days are aimed at lab animal practitioners and trainees – covering the current USDA and PHS regs, NRC and Ag guides, and with a special session on preparing for the ACLAM exam. This course has been highly praised by successful ACLAM diplomates as a must for board prep.
Right after CLASS on August 2-6 is the famous Pathology of Laboratory Animals course. The remainder of the week will be the 68th annual Pathology of Lab Animals Course – a favourite of lab animal pathologists and practitioners around the world. Last year, this 4.5 day course, headed by MAJ Robert Kim, was the Foundation’s highest attended course by representatives in over 25 countries., chock full of pathology of mice, rats, non-human primates, rabbits, ferrets, and mini-pigs. This year, because of ongoing uncertainty related to the pandemic, we are once again offering the course as a virtual course, in both a live version and a rebroadcast one.
We have added new speakers for major topics, updated the course materials, and for live participants – two mock exams will be given. And, as we did last year, bursaries for five attendees who can demonstrate financial and professional need, will be available again this year – stay tuned for details on submission requirements.
For those who register for the live version ($250 for Foundation members, $350 for non-members), there will be not one but TWO pathology mock exams.
For those who want lectures only, there will be a limited-time rebroadcast ($100 for members, $200 for non-members).
A limited number of need-based tuition reimbursements will be offered; for details on how to apply for these please email the course director Dr. Robert Kim (email@example.com).
More detailed flyers with schedule and speakers are on the way, but you can register for one or both courses now at: https://davisthompsonfoundation.regfox.com/2021pola
