The major goals of DMP 775 (Clinical Pathology) are for the second-year students to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to interpret laboratory data correctly and to use laboratory data to understand the pathogeneses of disorders of domestic mammals. Instructional strategies of case-based learning are used to provide relevance and motivation.
The clinical pathologist share responsibilities in the Clinical Pathology Residency Program. We provide guidance, mentoring, and instruction for the residents who are seeking certification as veterinary clinical pathologists.
The clinical pathologists, clinical pathology residents, medical technologists, and other personnel in the Clinical Pathology Laboratory provide clinical laboratory services for veterinarians within the College of Veterinary Medicine or for practicing veterinarians. The Clinical Pathology Laboratory also provides clinical laboratory assays to support clinical and experimental investigations.
For nondirected service, I participate in the academic and professional communities by serving on committees, task forces, and other groups. Since 2002, I’ve organized the involvement of K-State faculty in the Wakonse Conference of College teaching (http://wakonse.org ). Since 2004, I’ve served as an invited reviewer of the certifying examination of the European College of Veterinary Clinical Pathology. I’ve also completed officer and committee duties in the American Society for Veterinary Clinical Pathology and the American College of Veterinary Pathologists.
My research involves the identification and characterization of spontaneous diseases via clinical laboratory methods or the improvement of clinical laboratory methods.
