Your Course Instructor
Dr Camilla Edwards DVM CertAVP MRCVS provides peripatetic ultrasound service to first opinion veterinary practices.
She has experience in leading the delivery of day long, in person, ultrasound lectures and practical teaching to groups of veterinary surgeons as well as online courses and webinars.
Teaching is one of her passions and with daily practical experience in first opinion practice, she understands what skills practitioners require and want to learn.
She has experience working with many different ultrasound machines and companies through her reviews and affiliate links, which makes her the ideal person to deliver teaching on specific ultrasound machines and how to use them in first opinion practice.
Camilla aims to deliver friendly, informative, relevant courses which help veterinary surgeons to utilize their ultrasound machines to both the vet’s and the machine’s maximum potential.
Camilla is a great teacher who breaks things down so that it is easy to understand. She is also lovely, and friendly - I didn't feel I was being judged on my lack of skills! The training was all very practical and within the first hour I already knew so much more than when I started! It was great to learn on our own machine and I am looking forward to putting the knowledge to good use. Highly recommended.
