BCVA Foundation Course 2022

A series of 6 workshops

Held from April to September

Who? This course is aimed at new or recent graduates and those returning to cattle practice.

What? Topics include lameness, beef management, mastitis, infectious diseases and youngstock. This course consists of 6 courses and each session is run over one day. Each of the sessions will be limited to a maximum of 10 delegates, to ensure plenty of opportunity for interaction. No question should be left unanswered and there will be plenty of opportunity to discuss particular questions or topics with both the tutors and other delegates.

When? The courses will run April to September.

Where? Some courses will be run online via the Zoom platform and will involve polls, breakout sessions for group exercises and lots of facilitated discussion. Some modules will be in person. Lameness and Mastitis will have an online and in person course. You do not have to attend both but it will be useful to attend the online course if you are are planning on attending the practical sessions.

Why? Learn about and improve your knowledge of clinical topics alongside picking up tips on communication and interpersonal skills. The focus is on ‘approaches to’ common problems encountered in practice to give you greater self-confidence in tackling these alongside your clients.
