Internal Medicine: Keys to Understanding Distance Education

Internal Medicine: Keys to Understanding Distance Education

Three enthusiastic and knowledgeable tutors guide you through 10 modules designed to increase your confidence in your ability to diagnose and treat your small animal patients.

Using a system-oriented method, the aim of this updated course is to assist you in developing a structured approach that can be applied to any internal medicine problem. Such a framework can be a powerful navigation tool to aid in more rapidly and reliably reaching a diagnosis and developing a treatment protocol, ultimately improving patient outcomes. 

If you are planning on sitting the small animal medicine membership examinations for the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS), the course will form a great foundation and framework for your study.

A 2 day interactive workshop will provide opportunity for you to refine your interpretation of key information and develop an approach that is able to be applied confidently across a vast range of internal medicine problems.

Its a really good course, the tutors were really good and engaging. I recommend this course to fellow colleagues as it provides a good foundation for medicine. I just wish I had managed my time better and engaged with the tutors more.
