Course Overview

This on-site course will allow all participants to acquire further experience in canine and feline cytology and haematology. Each day, we will cover a different area and will start with a short frontal lesson that will provide a general summary of the topic with a very practical approach. After this, the participants will have a chance to review with individual microscopes a wide selection of cytology/haematology cases selected by the course masters. These will then be collegially discussed and special guidance to cytology/hematology reporting will be given. At the end of each day, more advanced cases will be also presented and discussed. Ample time for Q&A will be given throughout the week.
