About this course

Diagnosing and managing cardiac small animal patients can be challenging but rewarding. Advances in the field have increased the range of diagnostic and treatment modalities available resulting in improved patient management. This six week online course could suit any veterinarian interested in cardiology and in enhancing the management of their cardiac patients. It will contain many practical gems relevant to the general practitioner. It would also be of interest to candidates studying for the RCVS CertAVP cardiology modules (C-VC.1, 2 and 3) and C-SAM.8.


Course materials are a combination of course notes, videos, case assessments and discussion forums in which participants review and discuss cases with their colleagues and the tutor. Participants can earn up to 42 CPD hours.
