Abdominal ultrasound is becoming an essential diagnostic tool in general veterinary practice. Attending a face-to-face workshop in abdominal ultrasound is an excellent way to improve your hands-on imaging skills, and learn how to interpret your images in the context of diagnosis and treatment. 

Find out why continuing professional development (CPD) and continuing education (CE) in abdominal ultrasound should be on your radar as a clinical veterinarian.

Abdominal Ultrasound CE for Vets: How will it Help You?

Continuing education (CE) in abdominal ultrasound is a good choice for plenty of reasons. Firstly, it helps to round out your imaging skills from other modalities like radiology and endoscopy, and it builds on the scanning experience you already have. You don’t need any ultrasound experience to benefit from our much-loved Abdominal Ultrasound workshop, yet it’s a great way to get constructive feedback on the foundational skills you use in practice and reach for the next level.

Secondly, each one of our abdominal ultrasound workshops brings together imaging and internal medicine specialists, experienced tutors, and around 30 vets from general practice and referral practice. This creates the perfect atmosphere for sharing the latest techniques and technologies in the field, and allows us to provide you with the current and effective methods possible. 

Finally, a VetPrac course in abdominal ultrasound is social! You’ll connect with like-minded professionals, have a yarn, enjoy some excellent catering, and celebrate our fine profession. You’ll get inspired by talking to your peers. Trust us.

Abdominal Ultrasound Workshop: What to Expect

When you arrive at our abdominal ultrasound workshop, you’ll be greeted by a member of our facilitation team. We’ll set you up with an attendance pack, nametag, and a coffee (in your own reusable coffee cup, if you ordered one). 

These workshops typically involve a combination of tutorials, practical demonstrations, and guided hands-on skills sessions. We employ veterinary specialists in diagnostic imaging and internal medicine, so you have access to the highest level of expertise throughout the weekend course. Our participants also love our standard tutorial-practical format, where you attend a presentation about an organ or system, and there’s no delay or time to forget: you begin scanning it straight away.
