Event Description

Provide better outcomes for all your surgical patients and boost your confidence to approach more complex surgeries.

Wouldn’t it be great to provide your patients and clients with more and better surgical options and be able to confidently advise on their pros and cons to guide your clients’ decision making? Imagine the satisfaction of correctly doing the surgery yourself. This course aims to present an overview of surgery and assist you to improve your approach to diagnosis and management of surgical diseases. The resources provided to support your learning in this course include not only notes and journal articles, but also video clips illustrating how to perform procedures, manipulations and operations you can carry out in your own practice. By the end of the course, you will have built a video library of common surgical procedures that you can review prior to performing the procedure. In addition, the course is supplemented by a two-day workshop that combines case studies, surgical demonstrations and an extensive wet lab practical session. Throughout the course, important principles and details are emphasised. For the experienced practitioner, this course will provide both a refresher and a confidence boost for approaching more complex surgeries, while for the beginner, it will provide a strong foundation to pursue surgery with more assurance. In addition, it can help preparations for those looking towards sitting the small animal surgery membership examination of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists.

Past Participants:

“Very clinically relevant and great approachable tutors. The workshop was extremely useful. Definitely has increased my surgical skills and knowledge.” Natasha Hanrahan, Nightcliff, NT “DE Surgery is a great course for general practitioners as it focuses on surgical procedures that you will see in day to day practice. There is a big time commitment but the more time you put in the more you will get out it. If you have a good surgical caseload at your practice then you will benefit greatly from this course.” Lauren Harrison
