About this course

Do you find medical cases frustrating rather than fun? Does the thought of seeing a patient with chronic diarrhoea make your heart sink? Would you like to increase your confidence so that you can assess and manage medical cases competently? Would you like to enjoy practice more and get a buzz of excitement rather than a frisson of fear from medical cases?

Why do this course?
This course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to apply logical problem solving skills to some of the important clinical signs seen in small animal practice.

We will introduce you to the concept of logical clinical problem solving and specifically discuss the problem-based approach to vomiting, diarrhoea, weight loss, PU/PD and anaemia.

Course notes
In line with the RVC’s environmental policy we are trying to reduce our use of paper, therefore we will not be supplying printed course notes. The course notes will be available electronically as a downloadable pdf on the course which can be printed.
