This course acquaints students with basic concepts of law, as well as ethics. The course also seeks to enable students to practice medicine more prudently through application of legal rules. Although substantive standards of law are presented, the course stresses the role of process and creative thought in the development and application of legal and moral principles. Note also the emphasis onprocess and creative thought in the description course goals include far more than memorizing the current state of "law" regarding veterinary medicine. We aim to understand the general issues, for they will continue throughout your career to grow, develop, and otherwise change in ways that are unpredictable now. Note, finally, that all of the goals in this course are relevant, in one way or another, to the important practical aspects of veterinary medicine. Prudence, acquisition of technical, medical and scientific knowledge, and familiarity with contemporary issues being discussed in the profession and in society. practical requirements for any competent professional. We will turn again and again to practical situations to hone your skills at recognizing the many kinds of legal and values-based issues that characterize veterinary medicine.

The endocrine system has always had a certain mystique among scientists, clinicians and the general public. More recently, new hormones and complex endocrine pathways have been discovered that have increased our understanding of normal human physiology and behavior and provided insights into the pathophysiology of various diseases. As a result of these recent advances, the endocrine system has assumed a prominent role in our understanding and management of common medical conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and aging. This course provides a brief review of endocrine physiology. The course teaches the pathophysiology of each of the following endocrine areas through didactic lectures and small group discussions. It covers adrenal cortex, adrenal medulla (catecholamine excess), disorders of calcium metabolism (hypercalcemia and hypocalcemia), diabetes mellitus, obesity and the metabolic syndrome: pathogenesis, complications and management, obesity: pathogenesis, complications and management, thyroid disease, hypothalamic and pituitary disease, hypoglycemia, and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. The student wil learn the mechanism of action of the various medications used in the treatment of endocrine disorders as a way to emphsize physiology and pathophysiology. The concepts and facts learned during the lectures will be applied to solve clinical problems in the small group discussion sessions. The small group sessions prepare students to handle endocrine cases during their clinical years and prepare them for the USMLE exams as well.

Basic Human Pathology (BHP) is divided into two parts. Part I, general pathology, refers to the study of basic pathology processes that underlie all disease such as cellular pathology, inflammation and repair, fluid and hemodynamic derangements, neoplasias, and the study of genetic immunologic, metabolic and deficiency, infections, environmental, pediatric and geriatric diseases. Part II, systems pathology, refers to the study of diseases affecting specific organs and their systems such as cardiovasuclar; respiratory; ear, nose, throat; ophthalmic; alimentary tract including oral cavity; lymphoid and hemopoietic tissues; liver; pancreas and biliary tract; endocrine; urinary; male and female genital; nervous system; musculoskeletal; and integument.

Histology is the study of microscopic anatomy dealing with the structures of cells, tissue and organs in relation to their functions. The first part of the course deals with basic tissues (a collection of similar cells and the extracellular matrices surrounding them): epithelium; connective tissues, including blood, bone and cartilage; muscles; and nerves. The second part of the course deals with organs, systemic arrangement of tissues performing a specific function, as of respiration, digestion, etc. Species differences will be included where appropriate. This, however, is not a course in comparative histology. The course deals mainly with the structural aspects of cells, tissues and organs. It also covers the basic functions of these structures. Although the students will have extensive course works in physiology, this course tries to mirror the philosophy of Albert Szent-Gy?rgyi, ?Structure and function are two sides of the same coin: structure without function is meaningless, and function without structure does not exist.?

This photographic collection represents the collective experience of more than fifty years in veterinary diagnostic pathology. Most of the photographs were taken by me and other pathologists in the Section of Pathology at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine between 1982 and 2010 for the purpose of documenting lesions seen during autopsy examinations of hospital patients. Many of the images were initially made on 35 mm transparency film and required subsequent digitization. This allowed correction, when necessary, for exposure and/or color balance errors in the original photograph. As a result, the digitized image was a marked improvement of the original. Where appropriate, to further delineate the gross lesion illustrated, we have included microscopic images of the entity. Some images in the collection were generously donated by Dr. Irwin Leav, distinguished professor emeritus, Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Leav spent a substantial portion of his professional career at the Tufts School of Medicine as well as the New England Medical Center, Boston, MA. As a result, a few images in his collection are from human patients. I chose to leave these images in the collection since they illustrate the comparative aspect of many diseases common to both humans and animals. A number of photographs in the collection were taken by pathology residents. Although not individually acknowledged, I am grateful to the busy residents who took time to prepare and photograph many of the specimen in the collections, often on very busy days in the autopsy room while contending with numerous other responsibilities associated with pathology residency training. How the Collection is Organized and Searching To help those who may be looking for examples of specific diseases, the photographs in this collection are organized by both organ system and disease etiology. Primary organization is by organ system. Within each organ system the photographs are further sub-categorized by disease etiology. It is also possible to search the collection using keywords in the SEARCH window at the top of each page. To limit your hits to this course, preface your search terms with “veterinary gross pathology” (using quotation marks around the phrase), then add your search term/s. So, for example, to search for images of atypical interstitial pneumonia in bovines use the following search: “veterinary gross pathology” “atypical interstitial pneumonia” bovine . To see all slides relating to ovines in the course, use the following search: “veterinary gross pathology” ovine. PLEASE NOTE SOME OF THE IMAGES IN THIS COLLECTION ARE OF A GRAPHIC NATURE.

Emerging challenges to human, animal and ecosystem health demand novel solutions. New diseases are emerging from unique configurations of humans, their domestic animals and wildlife; significant new pressures on once robust and resilient ecosystems are compromising their integrity; synthetic compounds and engineered organisms, recently introduced to the natural world, are spreading unpredictably around the globe. Globalization is also providing opportunities for infectious organisms to gain access to naive hosts, which in turn leads to changing patterns of disease distribution and virulence.The course will explore interdisciplinary team-oriented approaches to complex health problems and set a framework for similar cross-school collaborative learning and teaching experiences at Tufts. The course is lead by four faculty members from the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, the School of Medicine, and the School of Arts & Sciences.
