MULT201-0306: Organ System and ABVP Core Examination Review Module A

March 30 - May 25th, 2006
Interactive sessions: Thursdays during this period, 9:30 - 11:30 PM ET

Planning to take the ABVP General Examination?

Looking for a comprehensive review of what's new in the pathophysiology & treatment of disease in dogs and cats? The Organ System and Core Review is the course for you!

Once again, we've assembled a great group of instructors who - together with a motivated group of learners - make this the most comprehensive organ system review course available.

Course Description & Objectives:
The Organ System Pathophysiology and Core Review course has this year been divided into 3 modules. Each module provides a systematic review of the physiology & pathophysiology of the organ systems included in that section. You will be able to use the 3 modules of this course as a focused and comprehensive preparation tool for the ABVP Core Examination. Even if you aren't going to take the exam, the depth and breadth of this material will provide you with an up-to-date review of organ system pathophysiology.

Module A includes the following topics: Neurology, Chemistry, Coagulation, Oncology, Immunology, Anesthesia, Surgery, Dentistry.*

Within these topics, you will learn the important pathophysiologic mechanisms that underlie the diagnosis and treatment of disease in dogs and cats.

Intrigued? Sign up before March 16th to get the "early bird" rate for this or all three modules.
