Internal Medicine: A Problem Solving Approach
Perennially popular tutors Jill Maddison and Sue Bennett present this course where the learning begins the way it does in the clinic: with a focus on the presenting problem.
This 8-module course will advance your problem-solving skills to develop a rational, pathophysiologically-based approach to treating internal medicine cases. An emphasis on self-analysis of the way you process and work up cases will challenge you and help you to improve your approach in practice. In this way you will be able to develop a logical problem-solving framework that will carry through into more successful and rewarding management of your patients.
Three days of face to face workshops will provide an opportunity to interrogate your methodology and discuss approaches with your peers and tutors. If you are interested in sitting the small animal medicine membership examinations for the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS), this is a wonderful preparation for you.
"I loved this course. It has changed the way I practice as a vet – using a problem solving approach makes much more sense to me and I love it."
Jocelyn Bunny, Dardanup WA
