The intensive Training in veterinary internal medicine will be at an advanced level with major emphasis on case-oriented and problem solving approaches.
The aim of this veterinary course is to give participants a sufficient level of competence in internal medicine to solve most of the problems in daily practice and to facilitate their collaboration with specialists in referral clinics. The course does not intend to give an overview of the latest research developments in internal medicine.
The complete study programme consists of three periods of two weeks (10 days each), during which lectures, demonstrations, case presentations and laboratory studies will be presented. The periods of two weeks will be given during three successive years.

This course will be coordinated by the PAOD Utrecht.

Themes of all three veterinary courses:

  • Course I: Clinical pathology (Bloodresults, cytology, ECGs, Gastroenterology, Hepatology)
  • Course II: Cardiology (introduction), Pulmonology, Endocrinology, Nephrology
  • Course III: Neurology (introduction), Oncology, Haematology, Intensive care/emergency medicine, Immunology

    Internal Medicine II

    In the second module, the problem based approach will be repeated in the discussion of several cases. As in all three modules, the evidence based medicine approach will be leading in the discussion of cases, tests and treatments. During the second module nephrology, endocrinology, haematology, cardiology, respiratory diseases, and urology will be elaborated on. A special short course on feline medicine, highlighting the differences to dogs, will be given as well.
