About this course

Due to tutor availability we have had to unfortunately cancel this course.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Are you wondering if it really is OK to just do an oviariectomy? Worried about leaving calculi behind when you do a cystotomy? This two-day course will consist of the principles of urogenital surgery and will focus on common first opinion surgeries and touch upon more advanced procedures. The cadaver session will involve a demonstration including tips and tricks to improve your outcome and the opportunity to practice the surgeries yourselves. There will also be a session on urogenital diagnostic imaging to practice your radiography skills and the opportunity to discuss challenging cases you may have encountered in practice. 

The first day will be lecture based with videos of surgical procedures, the second day will include imaging and cadaver practicals. There will be lots of opportunities throughout the day to ask questions and practise techniques.
