This course will give a grounding for new graduates in some of the most common internal medicine problems and techniques. A lecture based component will set the scene for a group of practical sessions and case based scenarios.

Part of our ‘Fundamentals programme’ aimed at new and recent graduates this course will provide a grounding in Internal Medicine. A new format will be utilised this year with pre-learning an essential part of the course with recorded lectures and then a more practical and small group approach to learning on the day. This will allow a far more informal and hands on learning experience for each delegate with the group of experienced medicine clinicians. - An overview of a number of topics will take place from pyrexia of unknown origin, the collapsed and neurological horses, coughing horses and how to deal with infectious disease outbreaks. - Utilising recent outbreak data we will be able to discuss real life situations for EHV and strangles to highlight difficulties are areas of success. - Practical sessions will cover how to undertake guttural pouch endoscopy, tracheal washes, bronchoalveolar lavage, neurological examinations and cardiac auscultation - Interactive case scenarios will present biosecurity issues, clinical pathology, interpretation of respiratory samples, analysis of ECG traces.
