About this course

Do you find most ECC CPD a bit basic? Are you looking for more advanced updates in this exciting field?

If you have an interest in ECC but feel that much of the ECC CPD you attend provides you with little new information, this course is for you. The RVC’s ECC team, the biggest ECC team in Europe, have combined their knowledge to offer you an opportunity to learn about specific ECC topics in greater depth. Each topic has been chosen as it is a particular interest for the specialist and in an area that is relevant to both emergency and general practice. You will be given a stimulating lecture, literature to read, a quiz to check you have understood and retained the information and, perhaps most valuable of all, the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the specialists and other colleagues.

The course is aimed at vets who either have attained Advanced Practitioner status in ECC, anaesthesia or internal medicine, who are studying for the CertAVP ECC C modules or those working in emergency practice at a high level.

Why do this course?
This course will be stimulating and relevant to first opinion practitioners who love ECC and want to improve their practice. You will hear about new and interesting veterinary techniques and literature, how to apply this knowledge to your practice and you will also be able to ask any questions you have to experts in the ECC field.
