Course Information:
The seventh and final module 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 Organ System Pathophysiology and ABVP Core Examination Review series of courses may be used as a comprehensive review for the ABVP examination for small animals. This series of courses repeats every other year. Individual instructors may change some of their material year-to-year, but much of the core content is repeated. 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
  • keep progressing through the topics so all topics will have been studied prior to the exam and
  • provide participants with feedback on their strongest and weakest topics to guide their individual exam specific preparations.
