Confidence With Small Animal Echocardiography – Online Course

Performing your own echocardiograms can be hugely empowering. It allows you to rule in or out overt cardiac disease without referral to a cardiologist; to guide patient management (such as the staging of mitral valve disease in dogs, or treatment of feline patients with HCM); and to investigate murmurs found in pre-operative checks.

Ultimately, confidence with echocardiography brings you more control over your working day, greater job satisfaction, and greater freedom. Many peripatetic vets, too, are adding echocardiography to their skillset, because it is always in high demand.

The aim of this programme is to accelerate your learning so that precious scanning time is spent putting your learning into practice, rather than struggling to interpret what you see. You will be equipped with a clear roadmap to follow, so that you can begin obtaining diagnostic information immediately, right from your very first view.

In addition to the 8 core modules you will complete, you will have lifetime access to monthly echo drop-in sessions and continuous mentorship via our invite-only veterinary echocardiography Facebook group.
