Train the Trainer: Veterinary Diagnostics
June 2-3, 2014

Join the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and the faculty of the Animal Health Diagnostic Center at the Train the Trainer: Veterinary Diagnostics course.

This day-and-a-half course was designed for veterinary technicians, veterinary technician faculty, and other veterinary mentors to provide a comprehensive review of appropriate sample collection and handling procedures. Lectures and optional hands-on laboratories will cover special sampling protocols, tips and tricks for collecting appropriate samples from clinical cases, and will discuss shipping procedures that ensure compliance with regulations and public safety. Discussion of common sampling and submission errors will be included to help optimize timely and accurate veterinary diagnostic results from full-service diagnostic laboratories.

The fee for this course before May 16 is $300 and includes one-and-a-half days of continuing education (10.5 hours of CE credit), 1 USB of the proceedings, 1 dinner, 2 continental breakfasts, lunch on Monday, a tour of the new NYS Diagnostic Laboratory on Monday, and a certificate of completion.
