Davis-Thompson Foundation – 2021 CLASS/POLA
And here is the beautiful new flyer with the complete list of topics and speakers! What a lineup! What are you waiting for?
The CLASS course is a great review/update of many regulations, policies, and resources for the practice of lab animal medicine, and the POLA course is an in-depth review of diseases and pathology of lab animal species. One or both is must for those in training in these specialties, and it’s a great review for everyone else.
Be part of the live version and interact with colleagues and speakers. Or sign up for the rebroadcast version (available for three weeks and part of your registration f for the live version) which fits into everyone’s work schedule and time zone. (NOTE: mock exams are only available with the live version.)
The Davis-Thompson Foundation is offering ten need-based scholarships to attend the rebroadcast version of the 2021 CLASS/POLA course held from July 31 – August 6, 2021. Scholarship recipients may attend the rebroadcast version of the course for its 21-day run (beginning on or about 13 August) at no charge.
All applications will be evaluated, but preference will be given to post-veterinary degree pathology trainees that are currently enrolled in a training program.

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
