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 enthusiastic and knowledgeable tutors guide you through 10 modules designed to increase your confidence in your ability to diagnose and treat your small animal patients.

Such a framework can be a powerful navigation tool to aid in more rapidly and reliably reaching a diagnosis and developing a treatment protocol, ultimately improving patient outcomes.
