The British Veterinary Dermatology Study Group (BVDSG) and British Society of Veterinary Pathology (BSVP) would like to invite you to their combined Autumn Meeting “Skin Deep” to be held at the Radisson Blu, Manchester on 11th – 12th November.


Veterinary dermatology is a clinical discipline in which there is intimate linkage between the formulation of clinical and pathological diagnoses. This meeting therefore represents an unrivalled opportunity for clinicians and pathologists to share a diverse and exciting program of continuing professional development, with contributions from a team of internationally renowned dermatologists and pathologists including Prof Monika Welle, Prof Phil Jones, Dr Peter Forsythe, Dr Tim Scase, Dr David Shearer, Dr Trevor Whitbread, and Dr Daniela Denk. Whether you are a clinician in general practice, a specialist in veterinary dermatology, an early career veterinary pathologist or a seasoned dermatopathologist, we believe that our meeting will hold much to capture your interest.

The Saturday programme is a combined BVDSG and BSVP day covering pattern analysis and emphasising clincopathologic correlation. The Gala Dinner on the Saturday night will give both societies a great chance to meet, relax and foster relationships.


On Sunday the two groups divide into separate streams. The BSVP program will build on the foundations set on Saturday with a strong focus on the molecular pathology of dermatological conditions, a continued emphasis on the importance of clinical and pathological correlation, and a special session on equine dermatopathology. For more detail see programme attached.


We will also provide a forum during which early career veterinary pathologists (residency stage or equivalent) can present their work. Presentations documenting cases involving any organ system or species will be welcome during this session, although we will particularly welcome abstract submissions describing cases involving the skin. We are pleased once again to offer a Travel Bursary for veterinary pathology trainees (see attachment).


Maintaining a holistic clinical-pathological approach through to the conclusion of our program, we will end the day with a combined session with BVDSG, with Dr Peter Forsythe and Dr David Shearer guiding us through “Dermatoclinical correlation: difficult cases”.


The 11th Annual General Meeting of the BSVP will be held on Sunday 12th November.
