About this course
Do you want to enhance your skills in caring for the patient with ophthalmic disease?
This is a six-week interactive course that will cover every aspect of ophthalmology relevant to the veterinary nurse. The course is aimed at veterinary nurses who would like to broaden their ophthalmology knowledge and skills. By the end of the course, participants will have reviewed some of the fundamental aspects of ophthalmology and gained greater confidence dealing with eye cases.
There will be active discussion forums each week in which participants review and discuss clinical material with their colleagues and the tutors.
Why do this course?
This course is designed to get everyone on the same page and excited about eyes, not scared of them. Some parts may be a refresher for some but through in depth discussion forums all delegates will enhance their knowledge whatever their previous experience with ophthalmic patients.
