College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Veterinary MedicinenoneVeterinary Path is unique to CVM, so outside consults seemed unnecessary. There are Plant Pathology courses but content would not be duplicated or redundant.
This course action is for content reduction for an existing core course in the the DVM curriculum and no changes in basic resources are needed. All faculty are available and identified to teach the course. There are no new facilities or equipment requirements.

This course will cover the pathology of the organ systems of the body of animals and will include:


1. Clinical, gross and histologic lesions that form the basis for disease recognition.


2. Causes and pathogenesis of diseases. 


3. Differential diagnoses and diagnostic tests used clinically and at postmortem to identify a disease.


4. Application of pathology information to clinical case problem solving.


Student Learning Outcomes

1) Summarize the most common diseases in each body organ system and their causes.


2) Visually recognize gross lesions in different organs and recall the disease/s associated with them.


3) Visually recognize histopathology tissue changes in different organs and recall the disease/s or types of injury associated with them.


4) Explain the pathogenesis leading to the formation of the different tissue lesions and the pathogenesis of different diseases.


5) Explain how lesions in tissues produce different clinical signs and clinical disease.


6) Interpret clinical problems, diagnostic testing results and pathology findings and to make a specific disease diagnosis or to create a short differential list of diseases that best explain the findings.


7) List diagnostic test/s needed to confirm a disease diagnosis or to differentiate different diseases on a differential diagnosis list.


8) Associate disease severity (MILD MODERATE SEVERE) with variations seen in clinical appearance, clinical pathology data and your ability to recognize a disease ante mortem or post mortem.


9) Integrate information you learned previously with information provided in this course and be able to apply this to medical problem solving.


10) Be able to list for different diseases the expected signalment, chief complaint, history, physical examination, routine clinical pathology results (CBC, clinical chemistry, UA, fecal), ancillary tests (EKG, radiographs, ultrasonography), and pathology findings.


11) Apply pathology terminology correctly that are organ system specific or non-organ system specific.


12) Interpret correctly pathology reports for surgical biopsy, cytology and gross pathology.

mlnosbis 10/2/2015: No similar courses outside of CVM, and has been fully approved by CVM.

ghodge 10/05/2015 Return to department. Number of students per section needs to be 100 with only 1 section. Clarify workflow: Are all Vet course seem by college graduate studies committee?

kenuss 10/05/2015: Numbers were flipped to be accurate. All vet courses are reviewed by the FCCCE ... a committee for DVM courses.

ABGS Reviewer comments:
-This is only a minor change. This action is fine.
-Is here a Veterinary Pathology I? Is it a prerequisite?
