Course Masters: Prof. Dr. Erik Teske, DECVIM-CA (NL); Dr. Lisette Overduin, DECVIM-CA (NL); Dr. Hans Kooistra; DECVIM-CA (NL)

OVERVIEW

This veterinary course on internal medicine is designed for veterinarians who wish to broaden their knowledge in internal medicine of companion animals.
By attending the three modules of the training program listed below veterinarians can expect to acquire post-academic training in the majority of `disciplines` of internal medicine.
Some subjects for which a special course is organised will be discussed in short sessions, the other subjects will be discussed more extensively.
The intensive training will be at an advanced level with major emphasis on case-oriented and problem-solving approaches. The aim of the course is to give participants a sufficient level of competence in veterinary internal medicine to solve most of the problems in daily practice and to facilitate their collaboration with specialists in referral clinics.
The complete training programme consists of three periods of two weeks (10 days each), during which lectures, demonstrations, case presentations and laboratory studies will be presented. The periods of two weeks will be given during three succesive years. The course language will be English.

• Course II: Cardiology, Pulmonology, Endocrinology, Nephrology/urology, Feline Medicine - Small Animals
