Laboratory session will provide hands-on opportunities for collection of uterine culture, cytology and biopsy samples, vaginal speculum examinations and endoscopic evaluation of the uterine lumen. Additional laboratory sessions will be devoted to practical techniques for microbial culture and identification of bacterial organisms as well as how to set up a basic microbiology laboratory in a private practice. In addition, interpretation of endometrial cytology and uterine biopsy samples will be reviewed. Other laboratory sessions will include uterine lavage, intrauterine infusions and specialty treatments for the management of endometritis and subfertile mares.
