Veterinary Pathology Seminar and Webinar Series: Building a Community of Learning

The Veterinary Pathology Seminar and Webinar Series: Building a Community of Learning was a monthly seminar series targeted towards veterinary pathology residents. This series provided a community of learning aimed at sharing instructional strategies between multiple U.S. veterinary medical institutions. Residents and trainees who participated in the seminar series learned instructional strategies to assist in training the next generation of veterinary pathologists and how to build a professional teaching portfolio in preparation for future jobs in academia.

This seminar series was made possible through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture Higher Education Grant, awarded to Derek Mosier, DVM, Ph.D., DACVP, Kansas State University. Other principal investigators on the grant included: Jesse Hostetter, DVM, Ph.D., DACVP Iowa State University; Heather Simmons, DVM, MSVPH, Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases; and Jay Hoffman, DVM, Ph.D., DACVP, Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory.
