Continuing Education Symposium 12: Musculoskeletal System, Skin and Mammary Gland
University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
Tuesday 10th – Thursday 12th July 2018
17 hours of educational activity will be recorded on Attendance Certificates
Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for the purposes of CPD, this event may be counted as 51 credits
Continuing Education Symposium Objective:
The aim of the Continuing Education Symposium programme is to provide an interactive environment to enhance your knowledge in the field of toxicological, discovery, clinical, experimental or veterinary pathology. The series of Continuing Education Symposiums are designed to refresh participants’ knowledge and understanding of core principles, as well as discuss any important recent advances.
Continuing Education Symposium Description:
The British Society of Toxicological Pathology offers Continuing Education Symposiums focusing on specific organ systems. This symposium (the final one in this series) will provide an in-depth coverage of musculoskeletal system, skin and mammary gland pathology and will aim to cover an overview of bone and joint biology; bone and joint pathology in rodents and non-rodents; animal models of joint disease, the role of inflammation in tendon disease; animals models of muscular dystrophy; pathology of the skeletal muscle in rodents and non-rodents; skin pathology in rodents and non-rodents; dermal studies; mammary gland pathology in rodents and non-rodents; in addition to case discussions, this symposium will also include INHAND nomenclature for bone and joints, skeletal muscle, skin and mammary gland.
The format will include presentations and will require the active participation of delegates. The Continuing Education Symposium will be of 3 days duration and the programme is arranged such that each individual day can be attended as stand-alone CPD if desired.
Who should attend:
The Continuing Education Symposium programme is intended for toxicological and discovery pathologists (and other scientists working with animal models), clinical pathologists and toxicologists including non-clinical regulatory scientists. As well as providing CPD for experienced members of the profession, the symposium is open to students/residents and those at the start of their pathology career. The aim is to make the content relevant to both those who have been working for a number of years and who feel they can benefit from an update (as well as contributing their experience to the group discussions that will take place) and those who are in the early stages of their careers.
Continuing Education Symposium Location:
The symposium will be held in Cambridge, detailed travel and accommodation information will be available to those who register for this event.
