About this course
This course will run three times in 2016 - on Wednesday 24th February, Wednesday 16th March and also on Wednesday 1st 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, of those that do there is rarely time for more than a few hours of practical experience and there is virtually never an opportunity for participants to return for further guidance after the course.
These practical scanning days will be an opportunity for veterinarians to build on their ultrasonography skills by spending the day scanning under the expert guidance of Pete Mantis. The days will be entirely devoted to scanning – there will be no lectures or course notes. You’ve listened to the lectures, watched the videos and tried it on your own. Now come and practice your skills with the experts!
Important note - participants will be expected to have attended a CPD course previously where the basics of ultrasound theory were discussed and techniques demonstrated. Please call us on 01707 666865 if you are in any doubt.
Book to attend on either Wednesday 24th February, Wednesday 16th March or Wednesday 1st June.
Please note this is a popular course with limited spaces so book early to avoid disappointment.
