Who is this course for?

All Veterinarians looking to develop their knowledge and skills in Ultrasound. You're aware of the value and benefits of using ultrasound, and you understand how it can improve your diagnosis and save a patient's life but need a little help gaining confidence.

What you'll learn

You'll learn how to:

  • confidently use your ultrasound machine without fumbling around with its settings unsure of what does what.
  • identify what is 'normal' and importantly what is not.
  • have a structured approach to scanning instead of feeling clueless and just getting by.
  • gain valuable CPD that increases your confidence and knowledge without having to put hours and hours of additional work in.

This course is for you if:

  • You're not confident with an ultrasound machine and wouldn't know where to start.
  • You don't want to feel silly if you can't identify the images on the screen.
  • You've been 'thinking about' upskilling for months but have been procrastinating and putting it off.
  • You're not sure if an ultrasound course would give you enough of your annual CPD.
  • You don't know how you would fit an in person course in with everything else going on in your life.

I'm Camilla and I used to feel like you...

A lack of awareness of ultrasound machines, unsure what probe to use, confused by poor images and worried about a limited knowledge of the numerous differential diagnoses.

Then after falling in love with ultrasound and enrolling on numerous ultrasound courses aimed at general practitioners I sat down and thought about what I needed when I was learning to scan.

  • Intensive support over a period of time

  • Good demonstrations of how to scan specific organs

  • Demonstrations of important pathology to look out for, a clear idea of what normal looks like!

  • Affordable.

With this in mind, I decided to create online courses for vets and veterinary nurses to deepen and elevate their ultrasound knowledge and scanning confidence.
