About this course

Do you find medical cases frustrating rather than fun?

Does the thought of a seeing a patient with chronic diarrhoea make your heart sink? Are you confident you know when to investigate a vomiting patient and when symptomatic treatment only is safe? Would you like to have a better understanding of what those clin path numbers are telling you? Would you like to increase your confidence so that you can assess and manage medical cases competently? Would you like to improve your client communication skills? In short – 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.
