The British Medical Ultrasound Society is inviting vets to come to its Annual Scientific Medical Ultrasound Conference in Harrogate on the 12th December, where it will be running a veterinary stream aimed at veterinary GPs with an interest in ultrasound.

Lecture topics will include interesting cases, the importance of systematic abdominal technique, the challenge of becoming ultrasound competent within a primary referral setting, basic anaesthetic nerve blocks, using ultrasound for appropriate medical management, how CASE can support competency based veterinary ultrasound training and more.

The session will end with a debate on whether it is time for a formal / stand alone Veterinary Ultrasound training programme and who should accredit such courses.

Speakers include Natasha Dickinson from Cave Veterinary Specialists, Niamh Casey from Village Vets, Miguel Martinez from Northwest Veterinary Specialists, Will Humphreys from the University of Liverpool and Nuala Summerfield from Virtual Veterinary Specialists.

The day costs £75 (sounds like a steal, if you ask me), and you can register here:
