Diagnose and manage a wide range of dermatological conditions with confidence, and enjoy those skin consults. Why be flustered when you can flourish? Skin conditions are common in companion animal practice. The underlying cause varies and may be complex, even in animals with similar clinical presentations such as pruritis or hair loss. Dermatology consultations will remain frustrating – for veterinarians and clients alike – if you always simply reach for the same treatment without identifying and addressing the underlying cause (or causes). This course equips you to develop a logical approach to the diagnosis and management of skin conditions. See

In addition, it will provide you with valuable information to make your practice more ‘feline friendly’.
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.
This course is designed to help you build a problem-solving approach to medicine that encourages you to define the problem, develop a ranked list of differential diagnoses and construct a logical means of investigating/treating the problem/s.

The course will present the latest evidence-based information as well as numerous videos and images of ophthalmic conditions and procedures, which you will be encouraged to practice at a two-day practical workshop at Dr Stanley’s practice.

This course aims to increase your ability to take optimal thoracic radiographs and to interpret them confidently. The modules focus on radiographic interpretation, with incorporation of complementary imaging modalities, particularly CT and sonography, to assist in explanations of the radiographic pathological patterns present.
