Event Description

Advance your problem-solving skills to develop a rational, pathophysiologically-based approach to treating internal medicine cases.

This course will cover common clinical problems in small animal internal medicine. The emphasis will be on problem solving and developing a rational, pathophysiological approach to internal medicine. It aims to increase your diagnostic accuracy and enable you to develop a problem solving framework that can be applied to all your cases. If you are interested in sitting the small animal medicine membership examinations for the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS), this is a wonderful preparation for you. Assignments consist of analysis of case studies provided by the tutor and clinical cases encountered in your own practice. This will encourage problem‑oriented thinking and logical case assessment that will carry through into more successful and rewarding management of your patients.
