Ever feel like you order clinical chemistries, but the benefits are
in a black box and you’ve lost the key? Join us for an engaging
and highly interactive workshop on clinical chemistry profiling. A
case-based format will be used to illustrate an organized, systems
approach and the interpretive principles that unlock and integrate
abnormal findings. Morphologic correlates from blood smears,
cytology and some histopathologic specimens will also be shared.
This workshop is strongly directed at DVMs, although advanced
techs choosing to attend may use the favorable pricing format.
