Register Interest

people iconWho is the course for?

Aimed at established vets or those with a particular interest in cardiology.

book iconAbout the Course

The morning session will focus on systemic disorders affecting the heart, echocardiography in a critical care setting and interactive discussions on how to improve image quality. In the afternoon, the focus shifts to cardiac therapeutics, sedation and anesthesia in horses with heart disease, and electrocardiography. The course will be concluded with current research updates.

As usual, this workshop precedes the 2021 Autumn meeting of the Veterinary Cardiovascular Society (VCS). All BEVA members will be able to register for 1 or 2 days of the VCS autumn meeting for the same rate as their own members. Over these two days, there will be a comparative theme covering small animal, human and equine cardiology (details will be announced by the VCS). The VCS meeting promises to stimulate lots of thought.
