We plan to hold all advertised courses scheduled between September and December 2020, provided they can fully comply with local Covid-19 guidelines. This will mean that a series of protective measures will be put in place; all attendees will be notified of these measures before attending the course.

We would like to reassure you, if we need to cancel or postpone one of our upcoming courses for any reason you will be entitled to a full refund. Please see further information in our terms and conditions below.

This one-day post-mortem course will combine both lectures and practical sessions.

A morning of lectures will provide an overview of techniques for adult, foetal foal and placental examination, with some examples of common lesions and pitfalls to avoid.

The remainder of the day will be spent examining macroscopic specimens, to include detailed cardiac examination, approaches to examination of the feet and head, and placental examination.

Please note this course will be limited to 10 delegates, so early booking is advised.
