Event Description

This course will run three times in 2017 - on Wednesday 15th March, Wednesday 24th May and Wednesday 28th June. Many veterinarians are keen to develop their knowledge and skills in abdominal ultrasonography as it is such a useful diagnostic tool in general practice. There are many CPD courses available from different providers that provide a rich learning experience in a variety of formats. However, some courses cannot offer a practical component or they offer limited practical experience and there is virtually never an opportunity for participants to return for further guidance after the course.

These abdominal practical scanning days are for veterinary surgeons with limited ultrasound experience or simply veterinarians that would like to fine tune their basic abdominal ultrasound skills. It is not aimed at practitioners with more advanced ultrasound experience. The days will be entirely devoted to scanning – there will be no lectures or course notes and participants will be expected to have attended an introductory CPD course (from any suitable CPD provider) previously (where the basics of ultrasound theory were discussed and techniques demonstrated) or have some personal experience performing abdominal ultrasound examinations.

You’ve listened to the lectures, watched the videos and tried it on your own. Now come and practise!
