The postgraduate medicine course is a semester long, lecture-based, intensive training opportunity for internists. This course is principally designed for residents training in large or small animal internal medicine. Nevertheless, it is also ideal for any specialist veterinarian seeking a contemporary, intensive exploration of a wide-ranging series of topics in the field of veterinary medicine.
This is the foundation course for the majority of our veterinary residents, and is considered absolutely vital preparation for postgraduate trainees preparing for board certification. The course materials are presented as a series of on-line lectures, with video of presenters, and complete PowerPoint presentations. Notes are provided, together with additional reading material as needed. The course instructors include many of the best known experts in the field today, typically authors of numerous book chapters and frequent presenters at national and international meetings. The quality of the material is excellent, and guaranteed to be invaluable for any internist or specialist.
Modules: while residents in training are encouraged to enroll for the entire semester of postgraduate medicine lectures, many specialists prefer to select a specific unit from the course. These can be taken as self-contained modules, encompassing all the lectures and accompanying materials for a specific topic.
