The British Veterinary Orthopaedic Association is hosting a basic level, small group, practical orthopaedic course at the Leonardo Royal Hotel in London on Wednesday the 11th October 2023.

Presented by and Alex Belch, 'Plates and Screws - An Introduction' is aimed at surgeons with no prior experience of applying plates and screws, and offers seven hours of CPD.

Andy said: "If you've ever wondered if orthopaedics is for you, or you just need an introductory course to get you started, this could be the perfect opportunity. 

"The course should be particularly useful for junior colleagues: the tutors are very friendly and it's great value thanks to sponsorship from Veterinary Instrumentation and the BVOA.  

Tickets cost £200 (plus £40 for non-members): 

The BVOA 60th Anniversary Conference follows from 12th-14th October at the same venue. 

Titled "Back to the Future, the conference features talks by Mike Farrell, Antonio Pozzi, Stuart Carmichael and others, covering subjects such as fracture repair, joint pathology, imaging techniques and osteoarthritis.

There'll also be a chance to look round HMS Belfast, and a gala black tie dinner. 

Tickets start at £250 for a single day, up to £795 for the full conference package.
