About this course

This six week online course is designed to equip clinicians with the knowledge and skills required to apply logical problem solving skills to some of the important clinical signs seen in small animal practice. Participants will not only develop an effective and robust problem based approach to medical cases but will also improve their skills in assessing clinical pathology and critically reviewing clinical data relevant to internal medicine cases.
It is suitable for all clinicians in small animal practice who wish to develop a more structured and thoughtful approach to their medical cases, including veterinarians returning to practice from career breaks.

The course will also be of value to veterinarians preparing medical case reports for the RCVS CertAVP Small Animal Practice module (B-SAP.1) and C modules in small animal medicine. Course materials are a combination of online presentations, course notes, supplementary reading, case assessments and discussion forums in which participants review and discuss cases with their colleagues and the tutors. Participants can earn up to 42 CPD hours.
