Level and Prerequisites: This intermediate course will be open to veterinarians actively interested in an overview of small animal infectious disease, immunology, ophthalmology, coagulation and hematology information. This course is the sixth and final module in the Organ System Pathophysiology and ABVP Core Examination review series. The MULT207-1018: Pathologic Basis of Disease and the MULT208-0219: Principles of Medicine courses are recommended prerequisites.
VIN CE Course: Open to veterinarians. This course has been submitted for RACE approval for veterinarians.

Course Information:
The sixth of six modules in the Organ System Pathophysiology and ABVP Core Examination review series, this course is designed to cover the pathophysiological basis of disease in small animals based on pathophysiological and discipline-specific concepts. Clinical examples will be used to illustrate these concepts.

The course can be used as a portion of the preparation for the ABVP Core examination, but it is not designed as a test-preparation course. The instructors do not have access to the questions. Also, material in this course may be more current than that examination. However it will allow those preparing for the examination to work systematically through different topics over the course of a year, accomplishing a broad review. The emphasis will be on pathophysiology, serving as a foundation for good case management.

It should be noted that these courses are not designed specifically as a preparation for test taking. The instructors do not have access to information on the question types. Furthermore, the questions used on the examination may be a few years behind the current knowledge and practice, whereas the course will strive to be more current. We recommend using the course to:
  1. keep progressing through the topics so all topics will have been studied prior to the exam and
  2. provide participants with feedback on their strongest and weakest topics to guide their individual exam specific preparations.
