Online Webinar Plus - What is this?

About this course

In the past decade significant advances have occurred in the field of feline endocrinology. Achieving diabetic remission is now, rightly or wrongly, heavily promoted: plus, there is an additional option for the treatment of hyperthyroidism (but which option is best?) and acromegaly is now recognised as a severely underdiagnosed endocrinopathy in diabetic cats. In summary – lots to discuss!

This online course will run over four weeks. Learning material will be a mixture of two hour weekly webinars (which can be viewed live and/or as recorded versions throughout the course), online case assessment exercises, supplementary reading material and discussion forums involving the tutors and veterinary colleagues from around the world.

The course will be of interest to small animal practitioners with a reasonable feline case load and would also be useful preparation for the RCVS CertAVP modules in small animal or feline medicine. Participants can earn up to 16 CPD hours.
