  (£1300 + VAT for all three modules)


Tutor: Sally Wilson BVMS DBR MRCVS

These courses are held in very small groups to enable high amounts of attention and tuition per person. The course is based very much on practical demonstration and tuition, giving each attendee as much practical experience as possible. Module 1 covers the basics, with the next 2 modules increasing in intensity and level of practical tuition. By the end of the last module, the attendee will be equipped with the skills necessary to:

  • perform a pregnancy diagnosis down to 35 days 
  • identify twins 
  • identify structures on the ovaries such as ovarian cysts.

In order to attend modules 2 and 3, module 1 must firstly be satisfactorily completed.

Extensive notes will be provided with “homework” between modules which will allow the attendee to improve his/her practical skills before attending the next module.  There will also be back up advice and phone support between modules with visits/coaching supplied on-farm at a reduced hourly rate if required. The date for the next module will be set after the end of each of the first two modules and will, as far as possible, accommodate the needs of all attendees.
